Funding opportunity: Swedish Institute Baltic Sea Neighbourhood Programme

SI Baltic Sea Programme

A call regarding the grant type seed funding is now open and closes 17 September 2024. Through the programme SI provides funding to projects in which Swedish organisations work on cross-border challenges and opportunities together with organisations from the EU countries around the Baltic Sea and countries in the EU’s Eastern Partnership. 

Seed funding can be used to lay the foundation for future cooperation. For example, projects can use seed funding to carry out pre-studies, feasibility studies, develop concepts, identify partners for future cooperation and even prepare applications for new funding. You and your partners can apply for up to SEK 400,000 for a project which you must complete within 15 months from the starting date.

Deadline for applications: 17 September 2024
