The Swedish Institute seeks to strengthen Sweden’s relations and develop cooperation with the countries around the Baltic Sea and in our immediate area. Swedish organisations can apply for funding from the Swedish Institute in order to cooperate with organisations in the Baltic Sea Region countries and organisations in the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries. The project activities that the Swedish Institute supports via ‘seed funding’ must be clearly linked to one or more of the challenges identified in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Projects encompassing countries in the EU Eastern Partnership must also relate to this framework. Furthermore, projects should help create conditions for long-term, sustainable relations in the region.

Basic facts:

  • The main applicant has to be based in Sweden.
  • The application must include at least three actors in three different countries eligible for support, one of which is Sweden (as main applicant).
  • A project may run for no longer than 18 months.
  • A project may apply for 100.000 SEK to 500.000 SEK.
