24 applications received for joint Nordic registers call

The third call under the Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare, funding for Constructing Nordic Research Infrastructure Pilots, received 24 applications.

This call is targeted towards establishing research infrastructures based on Nordic registers of socio-economic and health–related data in order to facilitate cross-border research that addresses societal challenges.

The joint Nordic registers established should subsequently be utilised as a knowledge resource for answering novel research questions that address grand societal challenges relating to health and welfare, and thereby provide a foundation for future policy incentives and interventions.

The total budget for this call is NOK 30 million, and the maximum funding amount that may be sought for each project is NOK 10 million. Funding will be granted for a period of 1-3 years.

Efforts to assess the received applications will be initiated shortly.
