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.
