Portfolio plan Global Development and International Relations

Stakeholders

Changes in international politics and security and global development will profoundly influence and shape Norwegian security, politics, economic and societal development and business opportunities and practices. The Portfolio targets Norwegian research organisations, but the public sector, business and society at large must benefit from the research results. Research relevant for policy making and public administration, especially the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, The Ministry of Health and Care Services and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) is an important priority. Other ministries, public agencies, business and NGOs will also benefit from the research funded by the Portfolio. The Portfolio also prioritises research relevant for policy makers, services, the public sector and business in developing countries. Global health research ought to be conducted in close cooperation with relevant local partners and the public health sector to secure relevance and benefits for the users.
