A total of 8 out of 36 applications were granted funding from the first round of Norden 0–30 in 2024. Applications came from a wide range of countries across the Nordic region and were all themed around social, cultural, and political projects.

The expert group decided to award funding of EUR 277 000 to eight projects, with individual grants ranging from EUR 18,000 to EUR 50,000.

“The applications were generally of good quality. However, it’s always good to remind applicants to be very clear when describing the aim of the project”, says Angutitsiaq E. Isbosethsen, chair at the Norden 0-30 expert group’s meeting.

“If you are young and have a passion for something, it’s a really good idea to apply for Norden 0-30. It’s a great way to get started with a project or an organization”, says Angutitsiaq E. Isbosethsen.
