Nordplus Horizontal

Nordplus Horizontal is the Nordic Council of Ministers’ programme for supporting cooperation between institutions from different educational sectors in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

The programme supports cross-sector projects and networks between institutions from several sectors, such as higher education, adult learning, schools, public and private sector and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Programme objectives

The aim of Nordplus Horizontal is to improve synergies and cooperation between institutions in the context of lifelong learning, support projects across traditional categories and sectors and support projects that tackle other, new, broader and more complex problems and challenges.

In addition to the overarching objectives of Nordplus, these are the specific objectives of the Nordplus Horizontal Programme: 

  • To support cross-sectoral network and project activities in the field of education.
  • To support innovative projects spanning traditional categories and sectors, which can tackle new, different, broader or more complex issues and challenges.
  • To support project and network activities that aim to contribute to the development of quality and innovation in the educational systems for lifelong learning in the participating countries.
