Joint Nordic Use of Research Infrastructure: Final Decision

12.11.2007
19 collaboration projects for Joint Nordic Use of Research Infrastructure will receive NordForsk funding in 2007. The final decision was made by the NordForsk board 2 November.
The NordForsk infrastructure call was launched as a new funding instrument 15 May 2007. Researchers in the Nordic countries have shown great interest in the programme. With a total of 54 applications, the new instrument is seen as a great success. The closing date for applications was 4 September 2007.

A total of 19 infrastructure projects will receive NordForsk funding in 2007. The infrastructure collaborations include participants from all the Nordic countries, and from Russia and the Baltic states. The project titles and main applicants are:
