With an annual budget of some 270 000 Euro, the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Public Administration offers financial support to civil servants and other staff in the public sector to carry out study visits, internships, training or network activities in the region. Activities supported by the programme require the participation of a minimum of three countries, of these a minimum of one Nordic and one Baltic.
NGOs play a prominent role in the Nordic Council of Ministers’ co-operation with the Baltic States and Northwest Russia within a number of its priority areas, such as the environment and progress towards democracy, but also as partners in building networks and cross-border co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region.
The Nordic-Baltic Mobility and Network Programme for Business and Industry gives financial support to different stakeholders in the fields of business and industry to carry out study visits, internships, on-the-job training or network activities. The objective of the programme is to strengthen and promote economic co-operation, entrepreneurship, regional cluster co-operation and innovation opportunities. The programme runs from 2009 - 2013 and is administered by the Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Latvia.
