Education for Tomorrow

NordForsk in collaboration with the Academy of Finland; the Swedish Research Council; the Research Council of Norway; the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Iceland; and the Danish Council for Strategic Research is issuing a call for proposals for research projects in a newly established programme entitled Education for Tomorrow. The programme’s main objectives are to strengthen educational research, contribute to a knowledge-based policy for the educational sector and achieve widespread dissemination of project results.

New insights are being sought in various areas such as:

  • Teaching and learning: new contexts, contents and methods
  • Leadership and management: new instruments and incentives
  • Governance: internationalisation and multi-level governance
  • Education and the welfare state
  • Equity and equal access

Who can apply?

Researchers and research groups at universities and other research institutions in the Nordic countries are eligible to apply for funding. The formal applicant must be an institution, organisation or other legal entity based in one of the Nordic countries.

Financial framework

The call is funded through a common pot provided by the funding partners, and administered by NordForsk. The total budget for the call is approximately NOK 35 million, and the research projects may apply for individual funding of up to NOK 7 million. Approximately NOK 2 million is earmarked for studies focusing on drops-outs.
