Practical information
Once the feasibility study has been completed and approved, you can apply for a cooperation agreement with Norec.

Norec has two programmes: Norec Professional and Norec Volunteer. The professional programme is geared towards the exchange of employees, whereas the volunteer programme is aimed at volunteers.

Some of the projects we support include participants on both professional and volunteer exchanges. To maximise the flexibility of the project, your case officer will advise you on which application to submit.

Application deadlines
Norec Professional:

Norec Volunteer: 15 March and 1 September

Apply for funding – professional
Norec Professional involves the exchange of gainfully employed participants.

After completing the feasibility study, you can apply for a three-year cooperation agreement with Norec. In the application, the partnership must outline the goals they want to achieve through the exchange and how they will work together as a team to reach them.

A cooperation agreement usually comprises three exchange rounds. In addition to the actual cooperation agreement, the partnership must apply for a round agreement each year.

How to apply:

STEP 1: Application for project funding.
This application comprises two documents.

  • Project description
    This document forms the main part of the application. This is where you introduce the cooperation partners and provide information about the exchanges and projected targets. The project description also describes the planned results for the three exchange rounds and how participants will be monitored along the way.
