Public funding sources
The Programme funds come from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) and Norwegian national funding. Project partners co-finance activities with their own resources.
Total funds available at the Programme start:
- European Regional Development Fund (ERDF): 263.8 million EUR
- European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI): 8.8 million EUR (subject to signing of the Financing agreement)
- Norwegian national funding: 6.0 million EUR
For priorities 1-3 (capacity for innovation, efficient management of natural resources and sustainable transport) the programme co-funds:
- up to 75% of costs generated by partners from Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Finland
- up to 85% for partners from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland
- up to 50% for partners from Norway (from Norwegian national funding)
- up to 75% for countries outside the Union part of the Programme area
As the Financing Agreements between Russia and the EU, as well as Belarus and the EU, are not signed, partners from Russia and Belarus cannot receive funds at this stage. However, applicants are encouraged to include associated partners from Belarus and Russia with funding from other sources.
