Strategy for International Cooperation 2010–2020
The Research Counsil's International Strategy has five main action points:
- All of the Research Council’s activities (programmes, open competitive arenas, special initiatives, institution-oriented measures and other forms of support) must include clearly-defined objectives and plans for international cooperation.
- The Research Council will promote Norwegian participation in joint programmes across national boundaries when this is crucial to cope with common challenges or to strengthen Norwegian research and knowledge-based industry.
- The Research Council will develop financial instruments to support the establishment of long-term institutional cooperation between Norwegian institutions and similar institutions in other countries.
- The Research Council will refine and strengthen stimulation packages to encourage Norwegian researchers, companies and research institutions to participate more actively in international collaborative and competitive arenas.
The Research Council will focus greater attention on international cooperation and researcher mobility in its internal grant application review processes.
