Ten years anniversary of the mobility programme

During this period of 10 years the programme has allocated grants for cooperation for more than 500 projects with a total number of over 3000 civil servants participating in different activities aiming at exchange of knowledge and creating networks between public administration structures in the Nordic-Baltic region and thus promoting cooperation of the NB8 countries.

The mobility programme has been described as a useful tool for sharing experiences and building new networks on regional and EU level,“ says Christer Haglund, the Director of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Estonia, the Management Body of the Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Public Administration.
