Networks of National Research Schools

This funding scheme was used to strengthen the co-operation between national research schools in the Nordic countries. The objective was to encourage mutual exchanges of ideas and competencies, to promote mobility, and to strengthen the Nordic countries as a unified area for research training.

The concept “national research school" differs between the Nordic countries. However, it is often defined as a research school that has been chosen nationally to teach and supervise PhD students.

A national research school should have a clear organisation for research education and a strengthened PhD supervision.

A condition for funding was the opening up of courses to research students from other Nordic and Baltic countries.

No future calls are planned within this funding scheme.
