The objective of SAMKUL (2011 - 2020)is to generate new knowledge about the cultural dimension of challenges facing society today. This will be achieved through interpretation, understanding and exposition of the cultural premise for the shaping of society and of social development.
The Research Council of Norway has drawn up a new policy for recruitment to the research sector.
A new SAMKUL was published mid-December, with deadline February 17, 2016. On the basis of the new programme plan for the years 2016 to 2020 up to NOK 100 million will be awarded to researcher projects.
The growing urban population is leading to increasingly larger challenges in many areas of society. But with the right measures, these challenges can become opportunities. To this end, the Research Council of Norway is now boosting funding for urban research.
