The report includes useful background information about the various sectors and presents the results in a broader context.
‘Norwegian public institutions, companies, researchers, organisations and municipalities have been constructive partners in a number of projects, and can be proud of the results they have helped to achieve. Together, we are helping to promote a green, competitive and inclusive Europe,’ said Mr Bakke-Jensen.
Twenty Norwegian public bodies have taken part in the implementation of the programmes and have helped to recruit Norwegian partners to the various projects. About a fifth of the projects have had a Norwegian partner, and all the Norwegian counties have been involved.
‘Towards the end of the summer we will launch a new results portal for the EEA and Norway Grants on the Ministry’s website. The general public will then be able to see the great breadth of cooperation that has been developed through the grants scheme. The portal will be interactive and will present further details about the results we have achieved,’ said Mr Bakke-Jensen.
