The NORRUSS programme is a social science research programme on Russia and The High North/Arctic with a principal aim to generate new knowledge in this field.
Norway will continue to strengthen its role as one of the world's leading nations in polar research, states the new policy document for this key research field. The Research Council of Norway is now assigning higher priority to polar activities and charting out a more targeted course of action.
Seven new Norwegian-Russian research projects have been awarded funding for activities targeted towards new knowledge about the Arctic. Roughly NOK 26 million has been allocated to the Norwegian partners, which is over NOK 14 million more than was allocated last year to collaborative projects with the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR).
Out of 7 applications, the Russian Foundation for Humanites and the Research Council of Norway, in a joint conlusion decided to support one project.
There is great potential for innovation and robust industrial activity in Norway’s northern region, but the question is how best to tap into it. Which paths should we choose?
Two joint calls, one with The Russian Foundation for Humanities (RFH) and one with The Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) had deadline at 4 September.
New joint call with the Russian Foundation for Basic Research is now available. The calls deadline is 4 September 2013.
