Open Calls: Researcher networks and Research training courses

07.01.2010
NordForsk opens two new calls: Researcher networks and Research training courses. Deadlines for applications are respectively March 25 and March 17.
Research Training Courses
NordForsk invites applications for funding for research training courses (PhD) from institutions in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The objective is to offer research training in fields that are difficult for the national research institutions to cover on their own.

The courses can be within all scientific areas, but areas where the Nordic countries are or have the potential to become internationally leading, are prioritised. The research training courses usually take place in the Nordic or the Baltic countries, and should be specialised intensive courses (minimum 5 days) for PhD students and young researchers (at postdoctoral level).

Deadline for applications is 17 March 2010 at 16:00 CET. Applications are to be written in English.

Researcher networks
NordForsk aims to bring together prominent research groups in the Nordic and Baltic countries in order to strengthen and increase the quality of research and research training on Nordic, European and international levels.
The NordForsk Researcher networks should aim to establish joint research training in a given field, to consolidate research as a basis for joint European or international projects, or to strengthen a given field of research in order to establish an excellent researcher network.

It is decisive that PhD students and young researchers participate actively and that the networks results in constructive cooperation extending beyond the period of NordForsk financing.

The Call is open for applications in any field of research.

Deadline for applications is 25 March 2010 at 16:00 CET. Applications are to be written in English.
