The aim of the thematic programme Education for Tomorrow is to generate new knowledge about the Nordic educational systems that will better equip them to meet the needs of society – today and in the future. The granted projects are expected to shed light on questions of great significance for the educational sector in our region, but also form an important knowledge base for other European countries, as well. In addition to these research projects, the programme Education for Tomorrow will fund a Nordic Centre of Excellence through a currently open call for proposals with deadline 6 November.
