The primary objective of the Visjon2030 initiative is to contribute to poverty reduction in countries receiving development aid from Norway, by further developing and scaling up innovative solutions that promote achievement of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals for education and health (for each sector individually or in combination). 

The Visjon2030-initiative was launched in autumn 2014 by the Ministry of Education and Research, the Ministry of Health and Care Services and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It was a national brainstorming effort to foster innovative Norwegian solutions that can promote achievement of the new Sustainable Development Goals for education and health.

Norad is responsible for the funding mechanism, with The Research Council of Norway and Innovation Norway as important partners in distributing the funds.

 

Deadline 7 September


There was a call for project outlines in December 2015 to February 2016, to allocate funds to the different funding partners. 125 project outlines were submitted, and they have contributed to identify the thematic areas for the forthcoming calls.

 

This call will allot approximately 50 million NOK to innovation projects and approximately 10 million NOK to formative dialogue research -

Everyone with interest in this call is invited to an information meeting about the call, at the Research Council 21 June.
