The Arctic Cooperation Program


Ilisimatusarfik, together with NAPA (The Nordic Institute in Greenland), has taken over the administration of the Nordic Council of Ministers' Arctic Cooperation Program for the period 2022 - 2024.

The Arctic Cooperation Program aims to support individuals, organizations and actors in the interests of sustainable development in the Arctic - through innovative and sustainable projects that focus on solutions to current challenges facing the Arctic region.

Projects must be based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Nordic Council of Ministers' 2030 Vision and relate to the four Ps: Planet, People, Prosperity and Partnerships.

Each year, the programme allocates DKK 10 million to projects in, and for the benefit of, the Arctic - of which around DKK 7.5 million can be applied for as part of an open application round.

The deadline for applications is 15 February - read more and apply here.


Ilisimatusarfik's part of the administration is that we have set up a group of experts to evaluate the applications received. The decision on which projects are awarded funding is, however, made by the Nordic Advisory Committee for the Arctic, which is set up by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
