Norway Grants represents a bilateral cooperation program deriving from the provisions of the European Economic Area (EEA) Enlargement Agreement to which Romania became a signatory part in 2007. The Agreement lays down the rules for co-operation between the EU, on the one hand, and Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland, on the other hand. The Agreement makes it possible for a non-EU country like Norway to participate in Internal Market, while contributing financially to regional cohesion via programs such as Norway Grants.
The exhibit opens on May 24, at 10.30 in the Foto Anexa (third floor), part of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, located on Calea Mosilor 62-68. The opening will be attended by His Excellency, Øystein Hovdkinn, the Norwegian ambassador to Romania, as well as representatives of Innovation Norway and of the Art Faculty in Bucharest.
