Call for Nordic Flagship Projects

Read the original newsletter article here.

Ambitious and high-profile Nordic projects

This call of 80 million NOK aims to support three to five Nordic Flagship Projects of up to four years in length. These ambitious and high profile projects will address interdisciplinary research questions from a Nordic perspective, contributing to the achievement of national energy and climate targets. The projects will facilitate in-depth and effective cooperation between Nordic research environments, world-class energy research and development activities, and the production of politically relevant research results.

The thematic scope of the call covers energy technologies and systems critical to the achievement of national energy and climate targets and visions. Proposals should be well aligned with the Nordic Energy Research Strategy for 2015-2018, which offers further direction on key thematic challenges facing the Nordic region.

Two-stage call

Nordic research environments are invited to submit brief pre-proposals by February 19th, 2015. Successful pre-proposals will be invited to submit full proposals in March, 2015. Nordic Flagship Projects should focus on creating Nordic added value, politically relevant research results, and having a system perspective.

While research institutions must lead the Nordic Flagship Projects, it is strongly encouraged to include influential partners from industry to increase the relevance and impact of the research activities. The inclusion of Governmental and non-governmental partners is also encouraged where relevant. Projects must have partners from three or more Nordic countries. Projects are also encouraged to include Baltic and North-West Russian partners where relevant.
