The Nordforsk has launched the joint Nordic Green Growth Research and Innovation Programme, in cooperation with Nordic Innovation and Nordic Energy Research.
The programme will cover innovation, research and energy, as well as science and technology. The programme will generate Nordic added value and create synergies with relevant initiatives nationally and at the Nordic level.
The programme has two objectives:
- To generate knowledge and policy advice about green growth;
- To stimulate innovative solutions that can accelerate the transition towards a sustainable society.
The programme will do so by:
- creating sustainable development in the Nordic region;
- reducing the environmental footprint of existing industries;
- increasing the competitiveness of Nordic industries in the growing international markets for clean technologies, products and services;
- generating knowledge and policy advice.
- Societal changes and future scenarios with focus on sustainable regional development.
- Global competitiveness and catalysing investment and innovation in nordic businesses to utilise the ongoing green shift.
The total budget amounts to NOK 73 million.
This call is targeted towards a wide range of organisations within research and industry, including:
- universities, research institutes and other research-performing organisations;
- private and publicly owned companies;
- public sector organisations;
- civil society organisations (including NGOs);
- municipalities and regions.
The involvement of young professionals/researchers and entrepreneurs is especially encouraged.
To be eligible for funding, the following conditions must be met for both modules:
- The consortium must involve partner institutions/industry from at least three Nordic countries. Entities from non-Nordic countries must fund their own participation.
- The host entity for the project (project manager/project owner) must be based in one of the Nordic countries.
