EEA / Norway Grants
The EEA/Norway Grants include programs to support deveopment in the EU-member states which have the biggest economical challenges. This is countries like Poland, Lituania, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Portugal and Greece. Bjerkaker LearningLab (BLL) offers partnership in projects initiated by e.g. NGOs in these countries. To be partner in the so called Active Citizens Program is very relevant for BLL. At the moment BLL is a partner for one project in Portugal (Literacy for Democracy) and one in Slovakia (Otvor Dvor) and is in dialogue withn possible project managers in Romania and Poland.
