The Nordic Council of Minister’ Offices in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2021. To mark the occasion, an additional round of applications for the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Public Administration will be opened for officials and other public-sector workers. The deadline for the autumn round of applications is 15 October.
Those who have participated in the programme have said it’s a practical and user-friendly tool for supporting and developing cooperation between the Nordic and Baltic public sectors. The Mobility Programme has been described as a useful tool of support for sharing experiences and developing cooperation networks at regional and EU level.
The aim of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Public Administration is to create opportunities for officials and other public-sector workers to exchange knowledge and experiences, to develop cooperation networks and to promote partnerships between the Nordic and Baltic countries at all levels of public administration, thereby fostering greater efficiency in the public sector in the whole region. The overall aim is to boost economic growth and well-being throughout the region and to increase its competitiveness globally.
The Mobility Programme supports study visits, work placement trips and network meetings of officials and other public-sector workers, thereby contributing to cooperation between the Nordic and Baltic countries at state, regional and local level. To gain approval, projects must include partners from at least three NB8 countries, with applicants from the Nordic countries visiting at least two of the Baltic countries and Baltic applicants visiting partners in at least two of the Nordic countries.
The programme covers up to 60% of the eligible costs of a project, which can include travel and accommodation expenses and daily allowances. The goal of the programme is to facilitate the harmonisation of more effective public-sector working methods, with the aim being to promote and reinforce cooperation, mobility, exchange of knowledge and development of cooperation networks between public administration structures in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
