About the programme
In 2007 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs decided to launch an ambitious new strategic priority programme on Latin America. The aim of the new programme is to stimulate research and enhance knowledge and competence in Norway on Latin-America.
To achieve this ambitious goal, the Research Council has in February 2008 initiated a new research programme on Latin-America, with a yearly budget of 15-20 million kroner for the next 7 to 10 years.
A first call for proposals will be issued in the autumn of 2008, with new projects starting up in the beginning of 2009.
The scope and thematic focus of the programme will be wide and will include social sciences, development research, research on environment and climate, energy and natural resources. To develop a wholesome and strategy for the programme the Research Council has appointed a lanning committee. This committee will present a programme report in June 2008. The report will serve as the
programme’s strategy for the years to come, and will be adopted by the future programme board, to be appointed summer 2008.
