The effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak are unpredictable in terms of both duration and extent, and they may cause delays for the implementation of ongoing Business Partnership Support projects. At this point, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs has decided to introduce certain flexibility measures to support the completion of projects whose funding will expire during 2020. A more detailed description of the flexibility measures and projects that they may concern is given below.
Projects subject to the flexibility measures:
Flexibility measures can be requested for Business Partnership Support projects that have been awarded discretionary government grants between 1 April and 31 December 2018. Funding for these projects will expire by the end of 2020. Flexibility measures are not granted automatically to all projects, but the recipients must submit a request for a review to apply for flexibility. To request for a review of a discretionary government grant, fill in the Notification of Amendment Form on Finnpartnership’s website and submit it to the Foreign Ministry’s e-service. The form is available on Finnpartnership’s website under both Application Instructions and Payment Instructions.
If the request for a review has not been submitted before the normal due date of the funding, the support will expire.
For projects whose government grant decision has been made after 1 January 2019, the terms and conditions that were in force at the time of submission of the application will continue to be valid for the time being.
In case the recipient has submitted a request for a review before the funding expires, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs will implement the following flexibility measures:
In other respects, the projects are subject to the terms and conditions that were in force when the application was submitted.
