Common effort for green, competitive , and inclusive Europe.
The Restoration of the National Cultural Heritage – Jewish School Levice project has been funded from EEA grants and the state budget of the Slovak Republic within the Culture scheme
The EEA Grants represent the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway towards a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.
There are two overall objectives: reduction of economic and social disparities in Europe, and to strengthen bilateral relations between the donor countries and 15 EU countries in Central and Southern Europe and the Baltics.
The three donor countries cooperate closely with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). The donors have provided €3.3 billion through consecutive grant schemes between 1994 and 2014. For the period 2014-2021, the EEA Grants amount to €1.55 billion. The priorities for this period are:
#1 Innovation, research, education, and competitiveness
#2 Social inclusion, jobs for young people, and eradication of poverty
#3 Environment, energy, climatic change, and low-carbon economy
#4 Culture, civic society, good management, and fundamental rights
#5 Justice and internal affairs
The EEA Grants are jointly financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, whose contributions are based on their GDP. Eligibility for the Grants mirror the criteria set for the EU Cohesion Fund aimed at member
countries where the Gross National Income (GNI) per inhabitant is less than 90% of the EU average.
All projects are co-financed by the State Budget of the Slovak Republic in the amount of 15%.
