How to become a participant
Norec finances exchanges, but we are not in charge of recruiting participants. The partner organisations must take care of this themselves. If you would like to be a participant, you can read about current projects on our website and contact our partners directly when they advertise externally.

Rights and duties
What is covered by Norec:

  • Allowance
  • Housing and electricity
  • Travel and Health insurance
  • Departure grants, visa, passport, work permit
  • Vaccinations
  • Transport to/from host country and to/from trainings.


Please note that you have to pay tax to your home country or host country. Your partner organisation is responsible for contacting the tax authorities regarding this.  Norec´s contribution is channeled through the organisation. 

Ethical guidelines
The work of Norec is based on equity, solidarity and reciprocity. At the core of these values lie our ethical principles. Participants, partners and employees are all ambassadors of Norec and shall act in accordance with these ethical principles in their work and in their relation to others.

We are culturally sensitive
We familiarise ourselves with local laws, culture, moral codes and traditions, and show respect in these matters through our behavior.

We respect human dignity
We show respect, through our behavior, to all individuals, regardless of race, gender, religion, colour, national or ethnic origin, language, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, political conviction, or any other distinguishing feature. We do not accept any form of harassment, abuse, discrimination, or any form of reprehensible conduct.

We are accountable 
We consider the environmental consequences of our activities. We do not use our position to obtain benefits for others or ourselves. We have zero tolerance for corruption and other financial irregularities, and we report unacceptable circumstances or behavior.

Challenges
What do you do if you encounter difficulties?

If conflicts, challenges or difficult situations arise while you are on exchange, it is important to resolve them as soon as possible.

We encourage the following chain of command:

  1. Your host partner.
  2. Your home partner
  3. Norec. If the problem is of great concern, and the communication with your parners has not improved the situation, please contact Norec.
