The EEA and Norway Grants were established in conjunction with the enlargement of the European Union in 2004. Ten new member states joined not only the EU, but also the European Economic Area (EEA), which brings together the Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and the EU in the Internal Market. In 2007, Bulgaria and Romania also joined and became beneficiaries of EEA and Norway Grants. In addition to the new EU member states, Greece, Portugal and Spain also take part in the funding schemes.
Aim of the EEA and Norway Grants is to strengthen political and economic ties between Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and the 15 beneficiary states.
