Norwegian funds almost not used by the Czechs

Although the grant period of the so-called Norwegian funds, earmarked for preserving cultural heritage, development of part-time jobs, and scientific projects, will end next year, the Czech Republic used only a fraction of the total CZK 3.5bn. Slow contracts signing and a missing Brussels stamps caused that only 2 of 15 grant programmes are running. Besides, one of them only contributes to seminars on subsidies. However, first calls for tenders should be announced by the end of the year.
