Call for proposals: Nordic University Hubs
Nordic University Hubs is a new funding instrument to provide funding for activities that facilitate cooperation within the applicants' priority areas, strengthening the excellence of the academic field and providing Nordic added value. The collaboration should be supported by the strategies of the collaborating universities, and include for example mobility, guest researchers, workshops, seminars, conferences, and higher education.
Nordic universities, universities of applied sciences and university colleges that perform research are eligible to apply for funding.
Each university consortium may receive up to NOK 10 million in NordForsk funding per year for the period 2018–2020, and thereafter up to NOK 5 million per year through 2023. The participating institutions must contribute resources equalling twice the amount of funding sought from NordForsk.
Application deadline is 3 May 2017.
