How to apply?
All applications to all parts of the Nordplus Programme should be submitted electronically through the joint application and report system Espresso.
Please read the Nordplus Handbook 2013 thoroughly before you begin any application in Nordplus. You can find detailed information on what constitutes a good application in Nordplus Junior in the Nordplus Handbook in sections 2.6, 2.7 and 2.8.
In all Nordplus sub-programmes the project coordinator (contact person at the coordinating institution) plays an important role. The coordinator submits the application on behalf of the project partners. The coordinating institution is the receiver of the eventual grant and is responsible for reporting. The network/project partners must sign a letter of intent (LOI) confirming their participation in the network/project collaboration. The letter should be signed by the appropriate authority, i.e. the top management of the relevant organisation/institution. In the electronic application, the applicant is given access to a prefilled letter of intent for each partner in the application. The letters of intent are sent by e-mail to the partners, who are responsible for printing the letters and gather the relevant signatures and return it to the coordinator for the application. The coordinator is responsible of up-loading all letters of intent electronically to the application by uploading them in Espresso.
Applications may be submitted in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English. Applications involving one or more Baltic participants should be written in English.
Applicant contact persons must register individually in the Espresso system before starting an application.
