Funding can be applied from the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (NOS-HS) for arranging Nordic exploratory workshops in the fields of cultural and social science research.
The aim of this funding is to support new and innovative initiatives and to facilitate the participation of Nordic researchers in Nordic and major international research programme calls.

Applications shall be submitted to the NOS-HS Secretariat in Denmark by 16 April 2008. The funding decisions will be made in June 2008.

An exploratory workshop shall include researcher participants from at least three Nordic countries. Funding is granted for arrangement costs, travel and accommodation costs of participants as well as administrative costs.

The exploratory workshops shall be arranged in 2008 and/or 2009. A maximum of 45,000 euros is granted for a workshop with 2–4 meetings. Funding can be applied by researchers with a PhD working at a university or research institute. The applicant nominates two other Nordic researchers who will take part in the preparation of the workshop.
