Nordic Centres of Excellence within eScience in Climate and Environmental Research - A Grand Challenge Research Programme within the Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative

Nordic Centres of Excellence within eScience in Climate and Environmental Research - A Grand Challenge Research Programme within the Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative. The Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative (NeGI) was established by the Nordic Council of Ministers, NordForsk and national funding agencies in Finland, Norway and Sweden. The funding partners form the NeGI Steering Committee and the initiative is administered by NordForsk. The NeGI Steering Committee has decided to allocate approximately 40 MNOK to set up 1 - 3 Nordic Centres of Excellence (NCoEs) for developing advanced models, simulation tools and tools for data analysis for climate and environmental research, with a special focus on Nordic/ Arctic conditions.

 

Who can apply?

The NeGI NCoE must have commitment from institutions in at least three Nordic countries, and the ProjectLeader should be an established senior researcher based in one of the NeGI co-funding countries, i.e. Finland, Norway or Sweden. The formal applicant must thus be an institution, organisation or other legal entity based in one of these three countries. The NeGI NCoE must have commitment from institutions in at least three Nordic countries, and the ProjectLeader should be an established senior researcher based in one of the NeGI co-funding countries, i.e. Finland,Norway or Sweden.

Thematic framework

The NeGI NCoE should perform excellent research on eScience in climate and/ or environmental research with a special focus on Nordic/ Arctic conditions. The research should be focused on the development of new modelling frameworks, computational models and methods, algorithms and software addressing major problems in climate and/ or environmental research with the goal of producing new research opportunities in the topical fields within the project period. The effort should be founded on tight interaction between topical eScience research ("eClimate/ eEnvironment research") and research on more generic eScience tools and methods, including groups from topical research fields and computer science/ scientific computing/ applied mathematics.
