NordForsk announces second round in call for proposals for interdisciplinary research projects

The application deadline is 28 May 2020.

The Nordic Programme for Interdisciplinary Research is a collaborative effort between the Academy of Finland, the Independent Research Fund Denmark, the Swedish Research Council, the Research Council of Norway, and NordForsk.

Interdisciplinarity is widely acknowledged as essential to the generation of new and ground-breaking research results, and there is an increasingly urgent global demand for scientific research that dares to think across traditional boundaries between fields and disciplines and strives to create fertile ground for new approaches and insights. The integration of methods, data, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from different scientific fields is crucial in the efforts towards expanding the scope of collective human knowledge.

To address these challenges, the Nordic Programme for Interdisciplinary Research now issues a call for proposals for excellent interdisciplinary research projects.

Available budget
Approximately NOK 119 million is available under this call. There are ongoing discussions among funders to possibly increase the programme budget to fund more than the planned 8-12 projects.
