Prosjekt: Effekten av EØS-midlene

Forskere på Fafo: Kristin Dalen, Åge Arild Tiltnes, Selma Sofia Forfod Yssen

Commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this paper describes the EEA and Norway Grants and summarises their effects. The Grants are the efforts of Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway to reduce social and economic disparities in the EEA. The 15 countries qualified for support from EU’s Cohesion Fund have received about NOK 60 billion through this scheme since 2004. The EEA and Norway Grants are also used to strengthen bilateral relations between donors and recipient countries.

The paper is a condensed version of a report that highlights some of the countless achievements of the 14.000 projects financed by the EEA and Norway Grants. The scheme has also benefited many Norwegian participant organisations and businesses and constitutes an important element of Norwegian European policy.
