A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Embassy to Sweden announces an open competition for private individuals and organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to strengthen U.S.-Gothenburg/Western Sweden relations on the occasion of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. Please follow all instructions below. Priority Region: Greater Gothenburg area. Program Objectives: To strengthen U.S.-Gothenburg/Western Sweden relations on the occasion of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary in 2021. (Note: Due to the pandemic, some celebrations are being delayed until 2022.) U.S. Embassy Stockholm is looking for programs that will promote better public understanding in Gothenburg and Western Sweden of the long history and tradition of cooperation between Gothenburg and the United States and that point to the future of that cooperation. These programs should highlight the advantages of past and future partnership between the United States and the city/region in trade/investment, security/defense, innovation/research, and/or academic exchange/culture/arts/immigration. The programs should be structured in such a way that they can accomplish their goals assuming the pandemic is ongoing and relevant U.S. and Swedish pandemic-related regulations remain in place. Background: Gothenburg is Sweden’s second-largest city and Scandinavia’s largest port. It is also a major industrial and academic center. The United States closed its consulate in Gothenburg after nearly 200 years in 1988 and the leading local cultural institution celebrating U.S. ties with the city – Emigranternas Hus (House of Emigrants), a museum about the roughly 1 million Swedes who emigrated in the 19th and early 20th centuries, most of them to North America – is in the process of closing.
