Estonia and Slovenia: Latest opportunities with EEA/Norway Grants
Estonia and Slovenia have recently released calls for proposals under the priority sector Human and Social Development. As their Donor Programme Partner, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health has been advising them on implementation and linking them with potential Norwegian partners. The main objective of all of the calls is to improve public health and reduce health inequalities.
These calls for proposals are an opportunity for individuals within the Institute to develop partnerships for future collaboration and also contribute to the development of public health in these countries.
Estonia’s Public Health Initiatives Open call 3 consists of two sub-components:
- “social marketing campaigns on healthy lifestyles”: Working to raise awareness of healthier lifestyles with a focus on youth, preventing substance abuse problems and promoting behavioural change to improve individuals’ wellbeing while also reducing risk-taking behaviour.
- “training on health in all policies in non-health sectors”: Working to improve health literacy within non-health sectors and municipalities. This includes a focus on the social and environmental determinants of health and mental health (with a special focus on youth).
All calls aim to improve public health and reduce health inequalities in Europe.
Slovenia has released an open call for proposals that includes the following programme areas:
- Public health initiatives (Norway grant) includes: reducing inequalities between user groups, prevention of lifestyle related diseases and improved mental health services
- Mainstreaming gender equality and promoting work-life balance (Norway grant) includes: Economic decision-making, political decision-making and promoting work-life balance.
