Portfolio plan Global Development and International Relations
Published 15 Sep 2021
Funding and investments
The Portfolio for Global Development and International Relations is funded by nearly all ministries, but mainly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Research and the Ministry of Health and Care Services. The ministries commissions research to underpin their different sector responsibilities, and instructions to the Research Council regarding the knowledge needs of the ministries are given in annual allotment letters. The research programme plans for NORGLOBAL2, UTENRIKS and GLOBVAC are developed in close collaboration with the funding ministries and, UTENRIKS exempt, with NORAD. The work programmes will thus give a more detailed description of priorities and efforts that are aligned with white papers and strategies put forward by the ministries.
