More information on funding from the Nordic Council of Ministers' Working Environment Committee
The Nordic Working Environment Committee is responsible for the co-operation programme for the Nordic Council of Ministers’ working life sector 2018–2021, under which a key priority is to promote safety, health and welfare at work. The objective is a working environment that is attractive, motivating and inclusive, and prevents health problems. All work in this area must comply with international agreements and EU legislation. The Committee will focus, in particular, on improving physical and mental health in the workplace and developing working strategies and supervision. It will also highlight the importance of good management and active staff involvement in order to ensure sustainable use of individual resources. Funding applications will be judged on quality, relevance and Nordic synergy. Although funds are only allocated for one year at a time, applications are accepted from projects lasting up to three years. If the Committee has the budget capacity for it, and the project has progressed as planned, multi-year projects that have already been approved will be prioritised ahead of new applications.
