– We want to support all good initiatives that can strengthen research about the Nordic countries at UiO, says Director of UiO:Nordic, Professor Tore Rem.
The call is for smaller funding for research and dissemination, and applications will be processed on an ongoing basis.
We encourage anyone with ideas about research regarding Nordic issues to contact us. We can contribute with our network, both locally and internationally. In addition to money, we can also help facilitate relationships with other relevant communities and researchers. If you are interested in starting something, contact us – Rem notes.
There is a lot of exciting and relevant research about issues and themes at UiO. Rem stresses that UiO:Nordic in particular welcomes ideas about dissemination and activities aimed at a non-academic audience and non-academic stakeholders.
In general, we also encourage applicants to think about how they can integrate a green and sustainable approach in their projects – Rem concludes.
The UiO:Nordic initiative
UiO:Nordic is one of three major research initiatives at the University of Oslo, together with UiO:Energy and UiO:Life Science. UiO:Nordic has previously focused on funding large research projects, where the requirements have been, among others, matching funding and the involvement of at least two faculties. This call does not have these requirements.
Today UiO:Nordic has eight major research projects, and will soon be adding three new projects to this portfolio. UiO:Nordic is also a partner in the Nordic consortium ReNEW, and has an extensive Nordic and international network.
