Modest funding can yield big returns

The Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (NOS-HS) is marking 10 years of productive cooperation. The committee has played a vital role in promoting cooperation between the Nordic research councils.
Modest funding can yield big returns

Professor Torfi Tulinus

At an anniversary seminar on 21 October 2013 in Copenhagen, Professor Ulrike Felt of the University of Vienna presented her research on “epistemic living spaces” in which she investigates the lives and conditions of today’s researchers. Kaare Aagaard, a post-doctoral research fellow from Aarhus University, discussed the Danish research landscape and the political changes that have directly affected the career paths of researchers.

The NOS-HS has a wealth of experience with bottom-up research funding for young researchers. Professor Torfi Tulinus, who serves as chair of the NOS-HS, points out that the committee’s objective is to promote Nordic success stories in humanities and social science research – because it is possible for even modest amounts of funding to yield big returns.
