33 new NordForsk Networks
More than 100 applications for network funding were submitted to NordForsk by the deadline 4 April 2008. The proposals were evaluated by two expert panels.
Altogether 28 researcher networks were selected, 12 within the fields of natural science/medicine/technology, 12 within the fields of social science and the humanities, and 4 interdisciplinary researcher networks. In addition to the researcher networks, NordForsk also supports 2 new Networks of national researcher schools and 3 Networks of national Centres of Excellence. A kick-off meeting for all networks will take place in Oslo 15-16 October.
