The decisions for the first applications round of Norden 0-30 have been made. The application round garnered a total of 20 applications for 614 050 €. The expert group decided to give financial aid to 10 projects for 321 777 €. The individual grants varied between 3 000 € and 50 000 €.
The expert group in charge of Norden 0-30 were glad to receive so many applications, as it shows that nordic collaboration among youths has gotten back on its feet after two years of the pandemic. Furthermore, it was positive to see such variation of themes and areas of focus among the applications.
Some examples of projects that received grants are:
