Researcher networks

NordForsk aims to bring together prominent research groups in the Nordic and Baltic countries in order to strengthen and increase the quality of research and research training.

A network may receive a maximum of NOK 900.000 over a period of up to three years. The funding should primarily be spent on networking activities such as travel and meeting costs, use of infrastructure/equipment but not on purchasing equipment per se. Up to 25% of the grant may be used for collaborative partners outside the Nordic region

The networks should aim at establishing joint research training in a given field, consolidate research as a basis for joint European or international projects, and thereby establish excellence in its field of research.

It is important that PhD students and young researchers participate actively and that the networks results in constructive cooperation extending beyond the period of NordForsk financing.

Applications within all fields of research are welcome. However, NordForsk encourages applicants to collaborate on:

• Joint Nordic use of Research Infrastructure
• Nordic Culture, Languages and inter-Nordic Communication
• Research on Nordic Cooperation
Further details about these areas are found in the call description.
