New funding opportunities are available via the Nordic Welfare Centre for integration projects in the Nordic region (this includes Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland, as well as the three autonomous territories of Åland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland). The deadline for submission of applications is 30 April 2022.
The Nordic region aims to become the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030. As far as projects promoting migrant integration are concerned, the following strategic priority is of most relevance:
"A socially sustainable Nordic region – Together, we will promote an inclusive, equal and interconnected region with shared values and strengthened cultural exchange and welfare."
The focus of the programme period for 2022 to 2024 will primarily be on challenges and solutions related to education and the labour market. Sub-objectives of the new programme are as follows:
- Disseminate and share Nordic knowledge and experiences of integration;
- Bring together the bodies and actors in the Nordic region that work with integration, including ministries, agencies, authorities, regions, municipalities, practitioners, experts and civil society organisations;
- Support ongoing integration work in the relevant countries.
