New deadline: Preparatory visits in Nordplus Nordic Languages

30 October 2017
Author: Jonas Toft Ludvigsen

The application deadline for preparatory visits in specifically Nordplus Nordic Languages has been prolonged until Tuesday 5 December.

Nordplus Nordic Languages supports projects that increase understanding and knowledge of Nordic languages, especially Danish, Norwegian and Swedish.

Special emphasis is placed on children and young people. Educational institutions, private institutions, associations or others working for innovation in language teaching can apply.

Projects can vary but all need to be linked to language teaching. We especially urge those who teach nordic languages as a second language to apply for funding to get acquainted with their partners in the other nordic countries and exchange experiences in language teaching.

The purpose of the preparatory grants is to allow partners to meet and prepare applications in Nordplus for the forthcoming general application deadline, which is 1st February, 2018.

The fine print

It is a requirement that at least two schools / institutions from at least two different Nordplus countries participate in the application for a preparatory visit. The meeting must take place between the time of the grant is given and the end of the school year 2017/18. A preparatory visit may last a maximum of five days, including travel. The grant is calculated on fixed rates, with no budget outline required.

Submit your application electronically

Applications must be submitted electronically via the Nordplus online application system Espresso. Read more about Nordplus Nordic Languages in the Nordplus Handbook and access the application system Espresso right here.
