As part of the international cooperation efforts of the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Open Call Funding Opportunity for Nordic-Russian co-operation as well as for NGO co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region continues in 2021. On this occasion, the sekreteriat of the Nordic Council of Ministers will hold an information meeting about the funding opportunities.


10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The funding is split into three funding pools, namely;

​​​​​​​1. Open Call Russia:

Focuses on all projects of mutual Nordic and Russian interest anchored in co-operation and networking.

2. Civil Society & Human Rights Initiative:

Focuses on strengthening civil society within all relevant fields of society. The projects in these funding pools must involve partners from the Nordic countries and from seven regional areas in Northwest Russia. Partners may include NGOs, local authorities, institutions, media, associations, consultants etc. Private companies’ business development projects are not eligible.

About the meeting

At the information meeting we will speak in greater detail about the different funding pools and you will have the chance to ask questions as well as network with other potential Nordic partners. As the information meeting takes a digital format this year, the schedule will be condensed as compared to previous years but rest assured we will allow adequate time both for you to get information about the funding opportunities as well as chat with fellow participants and begin conceptualizing projects. We will send a more detailed programme to registered participants as the meeting approaches.
