Objectives and thematic priorities
The objective of the Arctic Co-operation Programme is to provide support for processes, projects and initiatives that take into account the challenges posed by globalisation and climate change and promote sustainable development for the people of the Arctic. The Arctic Cooperation Program entails four thematic priorities:

  1. The population
  2. Sustainable business development
  3. The environment, nature and climate
  4. Education, capacity building, and skills enhancement.

Projects that follow up on and/or disseminate results of previous Nordic work in the Arctic — e.g. the results of the Arctic Co-operation Programme 2012-2014 — and activities that are in line with current political priorities and Arctic strategies of the Council of Ministers and the individual Nordic countries will be prioritised.

The threshold for maximum amount allocated per project per year is DKK 500,000.

Applications are submitted by sending a completed and signed application form received no later than 23.59 on 23. January 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden.
