Faroese National Contact Points for Horizon 2020:
NORA provides funding to collaboration projects that include partners from at least two of the four NORA members (Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and coastal Norway). The common thread linking all the projects is a relevance to NORA’s objective: to create a strong and dynamic North Atlantic area that is notable for its healthy and sustainable economies. Anyone — companies, public institutions, individuals — can apply for funding.
NORA funding can be applied to projects ranging from one to three years. Projects can receive a maximum of 500,000 Danish kroner per year — or 1.5 million kroner in total for a three-year project. Project applications should address one or more of the priority areas defined in NORA’s Strategic Programme for 2021-2024. More information about the priority areas is available in the section titled “We are considering whether to apply” and further expanded on in the strategy paper itself.
Furthermore, NORA also focuses on developing cooperation with neighbouring countries to the West. NORA therefore values projects that include partners from Canada and Scotland.
In general, NORA does not grant support to projects that can be characterised as research or cultural project only.
This project application guide offers advice and guidance about the application process and attempts to answer questions this regard.
