Nordic societal security in light of the emerging global and regional trends is the title of the call for proposals which drew 28 proposals. The plan is to fund up to four projects from a total budget of NOK 44 million.
Societal security is high on the agenda at the annual Session of the Nordic Council taking place this week in Stockholm. Since 2013 NordForsk has provided funding to a total of nine research projects to generate new knowledge about the challenges facing the Nordic countries ahead, and roughly four new research projects are on the way. The total programme budget is NOK 162 million.
A new call for funding is available for collaborative research projects on Nordic societal security in light of the emerging global and regional trends. The total amount of funding available for this Nordic call is set at NOK 44 million and the deadline for the submissions is 20 November 2019.
The Nordic countries have cooperated closely on societal security for several decades. In recent years, this tradition has been supplemented by several political initiatives across national borders. In 2016, it was allocated funding to four projects under the Nordic Societal Security Programme’s call for proposals on society, integrity and cyber-security. Recently, they met in The Hague to exchange experiences and lessons learned so far.
NordForsk, together with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) is issuing a call for proposals within the Nordic Societal Security Programme. Application deadline is 15 March 2016.
