Calls for applications

Small-scale projects

A continuous call system is in place for the submission of small-scale project applications, meaning that applications can be submitted at any time. Unless otherwise announced, the small-scale project call is open for all priorities. Small-scale projects will be prioritised continuously by the Steering Committees for sub-area Aurora and sub-area Sápmi by a written procedure.

Regular projects

Open and upcoming calls for applications will be announced on this webpage as well as social media well in advance of the deadline, so it is worth checking for regular updates. The Interreg Aurora Monitoring Committee may decide on a specific focus or special requirements for individual calls. The call for applications and guidance will clearly outline any special requirements.

Calls for regular project applications will be launched regularly, approximately twice a year.
