How can we better cooperate to combat unemployment among European youth?

This and related questions will be addressed at the launch of the new EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment on April 26. The launch will be held at Norway House.

The EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment aims to support transnational project initatives that promote sustainable and quality youth employment. With a total of EUR 60 million over a period of  seven years, we aim to contribute to educating youth, create jobs and train for work.

Norway's Minister for EEA and EU affairs, Frank Bakke-Jensen, as well as ambassadors from Iceland and Liechtenstein, will be among the speakers.

Entities in the Beneficiary States of the EEA and Norway Grants and Ireland, Italy and Spain are eligble for funding. Entitites in the Donor States (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein), EU Member States and international organisations may participate in the projects as expertise partners, sharing their experience and know-how.

The context and framework of the Fund will be presented at the launch, which will also include information on the first call for proposals.
