Nordplus 2017 application round with special focus on integration

Language: EN



In 2017 and 2018 Nordplus is highlighting the theme of integration in education and therefore encouraging applications aiming at education and training for refugees and immigrants within all educational sectors and for all Nordplus programmes.

- This year's application round in Nordplus has seen many projects revolving around the theme of integration and in practice working with education and training for refugees and immigrants, says Malene Vangdrup, Nordplus Adult main administrator.

In the application round of March 2017 Nordplus received applications involving a total number of 3.819 organisations involved in 582 applications. One of the 403 applications that has been granted funding is a collaboration project between the Norwegian Red Cross, Danish Red Cross, Swedish Red Cross and Iceland Red Cross aiming to find best practice for the Red Cross Refugee guide programs.

Best practices and experiences

The project is based on the knowledge and experience the participating organisations and volunteers have within the Red Cross Refugee guide program targeting newly settled refugees for better integration in local society and language learning.

Malene Vangdrup, Nordplus Adult main administrator:
- It will be interesting to follow how this particular project with the Red Cross from four Nordic countries will exchange best practices and experiences from each organisation's volunteers on language learning for newly arrived refugees and their integration in the local societies.

The main objective for the project is exchange of knowledge and networking activities between the NGOs. The second aim is to use the collected experiences as a tool of recommendation for Iceland as they are extending volunteer services to refugees who have come through the asylum system. This recommendation will be done in a report.

The project will start already in August and continue until February 2018.


Nordplus offers financial support to a variety of educational cooperations between partners in the area of lifelong learning between the eight participating countries and three autonomous regions in the Baltic and Nordic region.

  • The program supports networking, project collaboration and student/teacher mobility between the Baltic and Nordic countries
  • Overall programme budget for 2017 is 10,2 million euro
  • Participating countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Aaland Islands
  • The next deadline for submitting proposals to the Nordplus programmes is 1st February 2018

    Orice forma de sprijinire a migratiei contravine principiilor obiective ale autoreglarii speciilor gregare, din care fac parte si popoarele omenirii! 

    Printre multele legi obiective (naturale) autoreglatoare ale biosferei, deosebit de importante pentru pastrarea armoniei grupurior umane cu natura sunt: legea habitatului , legea cuibului, legea hranirii, care, intr-un stat prodemocrat ( ar trebui sa  se regaseasca in sistemul de drept juridic sub drepturi fundamentale ale omului, respectiv: dreptul la proprietate publică, dreptul la proprietate economica de uz familial, dreptul la garantarea unui loc de munca platit decent (

    Prin urmare guvernele trebuie sa actioneze impotriva cauzelor migratiei: razboaie de jefuire a resurselor  habitatelor altor gruprui gregare, sprijinirea grupurilor defavorizate nationale, etc., nu asupra efectelor lor: integrarea imigrantilor.
