Apply for funding for Nordic co-operation in the gender equality and LGBTI area

Next year, NIKK will open up the possibility of applying for funding for Nordic co-operation in the gender equality and LGBTI area again. As in previous years, actors from at least three Nordic countries are required to participate in the application. In total, nearly 3,6 million Danish kroner will be distributed. 


In order to be granted funding from the Nordic Gender Equality Fund or the Nordic LGBTI Fund, the planned activity needs to start in 2022 and be completed within two years. The funds can, for example, be used to develop joint methods, develop new knowledge or arrange conferences and networks. The application is made through a form that is available on nikk.no during the application period.
