During the summer we have made a preliminary budget for ArcticSkills 2019 with total expenses of 1,7 mill NOK. This budget has served as basis for one application to The Norwegian Barents Secretariat for a sum of 850’ NOK, and one to the North Calotte Council for an amount of 10’ Euro (90’ NOK)

The decision of the Board of the Barents Secretariat has been postponed to December 2018. The North Calotte Council made their decision 15th of October, and granted the applied sum of 10 000 Euro.

The board also discussed the Logical framework matrix, which will serve as basis for the Kolarctic application. The window opened on the 21st of September and will close on December 21st. Trond Hansen will handle the application. A group for support and consultations will contribute in the work.

Trond needs inputs from the partners to finalize a draft to be sent to Kolarctic ASAP. Trond’s deadline for the inputs is set to 1st Nov 18.
Kolarctic application will apply for THREE years and must contain an Exit Strategy.

International adviser from The County of Finnmark, Markus Karlsen, informed the board of the process and the program, and offered consultations in the process. He pointed at the:
Application deadline 21st December 2018
