Previously, approx. 20-25% of the applications came from other Nordic or non-Nordic countries, while in 2021 applications from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Slovenia accounted for only 14% of all applications.
NAPA received applications from 7 different countries in 2021, of which 4 also received grants. Of the 53 grants, 55% went to Greenland-clad projects, 38% to projects with a Danish project owner, and the rest (7%) was distributed between projects from Sweden, Norway and Finland.
In terms of money, the distribution is as follows: Greenland accounted for 46% of the amounts granted, Denmark 46%, Sweden 4%, Norway 3% and Finland 1%. There were no applications from the Faroe Islands or Åland in 2021.
In 2022, it will also be possible to choose “Sápmi” as a country, which will help NAPA to also register Sami applicants and project partners, which is considered important in terms of highlighting and recognizing Arctic perspectives in the Nordic region.
