What are the EEA and Norway Grants?
The Grants represent the contribution of Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein to reducing economic and social disparities, and strengthening cooperation with 15 EU countries. The basis for the Grants is the EEA Agreement. In its essence, the Grants are about working across borders, striving for economic and social growth, and continuously aiming to build a better future.

Norway and Greece signed a new cooperation agreement in October 2017
The Norwegian State Secretary Jens Frølich Holte signed on behalf of Norway, while the Greek side was represented by the Alternate Minister for Economy and Development Alexis Charitsis. 

Over nearly three decades, the Grants in Greece have produced positive results in many diverse fields like civil society, asylum and migration, environment, culture and science. Watch this video about renewable energy sources in Andros to get an impression of some of the great projects:
