Feasibility study

In order to start a cooperation project, you will first need to complete a feasibility study. This will enable the cooperating parties to get to know each other better and agree on the goals for the project. The feasibility study is primarily based on an introductory seminar run by Norec and a partnership meeting. During the feasibility study, the parties should prepare an exchange application together.

Project application

Once you have completed the feasibility study, you can apply for a cooperation agreement with Norec. This usually comprises three exchange rounds and spans several years. In their application, the partners must identify the goals for the project and outline how they will work together to achieve them. Each partnership will have a dedicated case officer at Norec, who will be able to provide advice and guidance on the application process.

Exchange

Once you have entered into a cooperation agreement with Norec, you can start recruiting the participants. You can recruit participants among your own employees or members, or advertise the exchange externally. Members of the partnership are jointly responsible for recruiting and following up with participants before, during and after the exchanges. This includes, among other things, securing the necessary work permits and employment contracts and arranging travel, visas and insurance. It is also important to establish a plan for including participants in professional and social activities at their new workplace.
