Networks of national Centres of Excellence (CoE)

This funding scheme was used to promote cooperation between national centres of excellence or other research groups with corresponding status in the Nordic countries.

Increased cooperation between the best research groups in the Nordic countries is an important contribution to strengthening the Nordic countries as one of the world’s most dynamic regions for research and innovation. NordForsk used this funding scheme as a means to stimulate to and facilitate this.

The active participation of Ph.D. students and young researchers was emphasised, as well as the network resulting in constructive cooperation that can extend beyond the period of the NordForsk grant.

No future calls are planned within this funding scheme.
