Here you find an overview of our active research programmes.
We also have an overview of projects which have received funding from NordForsk.
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 Nordic region is the European leader in gender equality, but when it comes to leadership positions in research and innovation, men dominate just as widely here as in the rest of Europe.
The objective of the Nordic Bioeconomy Programme is to generate new knowledge on how to promote and advance the transition to a bioeconomy-based society in the Nordic countries.
The Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative (NeGI) promotes Nordic collaboration on eScience by means of targeted efforts on eScience research and graduate education.
Nordic Innovation, NordForsk and Nordic Energy Research collaborate on this research- and innovation programme, with the aim to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable Nordic society. Approximately 73 MNOK will be granted to the best Nordic innovation and research projects.
The Nordic research community may have a front row seat when the European Spallation Source (ESS) becomes operational in 2019. But Nordic researchers have to be well prepared in scientific terms if they are to take full advantage of the unique opportunities offered by this nearly DKK 20 billion research infrastructure in Lund. Therefore, NordForsk has launched a Nordic programme for neutron research, with an emphasis on building new competencies.
The overall goal of the Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare is to improve health in the Nordic countries by finding solutions to societal and public health challenges through high-quality research.
The Nordic Societal Security Programme is a multidisciplinary research programme designed to generate new knowledge about what is required to ensure the safety and security of the Nordic countries' inhabitants.
The Joint Nordic Initiative on Arctic Research has been established to generate new insight into the challenges and new opportunities confronting the Arctic region.
The Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) facilitates the development of advanced IT tools and services in areas of importance to Nordic researchers.
The Top-level Research Initiative (TRI) is the largest joint Nordic research and innovation initiative to date. The initiative aims to involve the very best agencies and institutions in the Nordic region, and promote research and innovation of the highest level, in order to make a Nordic contribution towards solving the global climate crisis.
