The situation caused by the Coronavirus, COVID-19, is very serious, and the most important task for all of us now is to stop the spread of the virus. As the contact point for the EEA and Norway GrantsActive Citizens Fund, we are following the Norwegian Government’s advice and guidance, and have therefore cancelled or postponed our travels. However, we are also finding new ways and solutions to continue our important work as contact point between the civil society in Norway and the recipient countries.  

As many projects funded by Active Citizens Fund are affected by the measures taken to contain the spread of the virus, we are in close contact with the Fund Operators in order to identify measures that will secure further good cooperation.   

The Fund Operator in Greece has postponed the application deadline for project support so that there will still be some time to apply for funds before the new deadline 2 June. Read more  

Other Fund Operators are working on finding online solutions for their matchmaking. Do you want to stay updated and possibly participate, please sign up to our newsletter and we’ll send you the information as it develops. 

Are you planning an online seminar, launch or other events? Please send us an email at and we’ll be happy to contribute to your event by presenting the fund itself or information about civil society in Norway and the 15 recipient countries through webinar and online presentations. Here is a webinar that we made about the possibilities for Norwegian organisations, and we are also making tailored presentations for launches and matchmakings.
