The thematic area for this joint call for proposals is inclusion in pre-primary and primary education with a focus on teaching and learning for children and students in need of special support. Projects are required to incorporate cooperation between researchers and research-oriented practitioners.
The aim of the programme is to stimulate the knowledge communities in the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom to cooperate in order to enhance opportunities and address challenges of migration and integration. The main objectives of the Programme are to enhance Nordic and British research collaboration and to fund excellent research with impact within and beyond academia.
NordForsk received a full 218 applications in response to its call for proposals under the Joint Nordic-UK research programme on Migration and Integration. NordForsk decided to award a total of NOK 87 million to seven research projects.
The study of migration is instrumental in providing a better knowledge base for decision-makers – and promoting a more informed population at large. A new NordForsk policy paper maps the current Nordic integration and migration landscape, and suggests measures that can improve the policy relevance of research activities.
