How to apply?

The aim of this page is to help potential applicants find their way to relevant information on funding opportunities through the EEA Grants and Norway Grants 2014-2021 in Croatia.

What is funded where?

Croatia on 3 July 2018 signed new Memoranda of Understanding with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway on a number of new programmes under the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.

Croatia has chosen a set of programmes that provide grants to projects.

How to apply?

All supported projects need to contribute to achieving a set of clearly defined development results. To see if your project idea may be funded you need to check the defined outcomes of the programme in question and of the relevant open call for project proposals.

How and when to apply?

The funding in the form of grants is normally allocated through the publication of calls for proposals. Project proposals have to be submitted to the relevant programme operator by a certain deadline and comply with the clearly defined outcome of the call. It is not possible to apply to the EEA and Norway Grants programmes for assistance spontaneously.

Programmes will not necessarily fund the entirety of the project costs and some level of co-financing may be required.

You can see ongoing calls for the 2014-2021 funding period here.
