How to apply financing from Kolarctic ENPI CBC
The programme launches a call for proposals twice a year. Guidelines to grant applicants and a application form is published in the beginning of each call. See http://www.kolarcticenpi.info/en/call
A well made project plan is a central part of the application. The project plan must be shortly described in an electronic application form that is published in http://www.enpi.fi/ at the start of every call for proposals. Annexes like partnership statements, registration certificates etc, are also required. A full list of the required annexes will be published on this website at the beginning of every call for proposals.
