Update on the availability of funding for partners from Non-EU countries

On 4th July, the Interreg NPA EU Member State countries (Finland, Sweden, Ireland) agreed that, if needed, they are ready to use ERDF funding for partners in the Non-EU Member States of the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland.


Currently, several Non-EU Member State funding sources are nearly fully allocated. The EU Member State representatives agreed that it is important to ensure that future Interreg NPA projects can have wide transnational partnerships. 

This is important news for project applicants in the Fifth Call, which is still open until 30th September. Unlocking the use of ERDF funds for Faroese, Greenlandic and Icelandic organisations will help project applicants to develop more balanced partnerships and support the participation of relevant organisations to achieve project goals.

It is important to highlight that the existing project selection process still applies, meaning that projects are in competition with each other for funding, and only good quality projects with reasonable budgets are likely to be approved. In other words, there are no guarantees to receive funding, and this decision does not change that.

Applicants from Non-EU Member States are still advised to check if there are any national restrictions to or recommendations for budget levels and programme match funding, for example by checking national information websites, or by contacting their Regional Contact Point.

Please be aware that the participation of Norwegian partner organisations remains subject to the availability of national funds only.
