The Sweden-Lithuania Cooperation Fund invites applications for grants emphasizing cooperation projects between young people in the two countries.
The distance between Vilnius and Stockholm is 675.56 km. Do you have ideas about how to reduce this distance? The Sweden-Lithuania Cooperation Fund supports the development of promising project ideas and the start-up phase of new projects with a clear development perspective. Applications are welcome until October 7th, 2022.
The main objective is to enhance creativity, innovations, and entrepreneurship, and to support cultural and language exchange within the fields of culture, education, entrepreneurship, and media. An established partnership in the respective country is required. There are three different grants: project, travel, and media grants.
The grants can be applied for by individuals, groups, organizations, or companies. The application period lasts to October 7th (included) and the maximum amount for projects is 5000 EURO.
- We welcome young people in Sweden and Lithuania to use this opportunity to deepen the contacts between our countries. This is about creating lasting networks, says Peter Egardt, Chairman of the Sweden-Lithuania Cooperation Fund board.
