Cooperation outside the EU/EEA
Bilateral research cooperation
The Research Council has entered into bilateral cooperation agreements with a number of countries. These agreements lay a foundation for many funding opportunities for Norwegian researchers. We have drawn up roadmaps for research cooperation that detail the status of cooperation with each of these countries.
Thematic areas: Climate and polar research, the environment, security, health, energy, biodiversity, space research and social sciences. To find calls for proposals, see the INTPART programme also for the Graduate Research Opportunity Worldwide (GROW) scheme, which provides grants for research stays for US doctoral fellows at Norwegian research institutions.
Canadian and Norwegian researchers have established extensive collaboration in a number of fields. Keywords: Arctic areas and polar research, fisheries and aquaculture, oil and gas, the environment and climate. To find calls for proposals, see the INTPART programme also for the Graduate Research Opportunity Worldwide (GROW) scheme, which provides grants for research stays for US doctoral fellows at Norwegian research institutions.
Priority thematic areas: energy and the environment, materials and nanotechnology, seafood safety, and polar and space research. We allocate Personal Visiting Researcher Grants and Personal Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships annually (see calls for proposals). Also see the calls under the INTPART programme.
Research and innovation areas with a particular potential for cooperation with Brazil: petroleum, renewable energy, climate and the environment, marine research, bioeconomy/food, culture/ social perspectives. To find calls for proposals, see the INTPART programme.
Particularly relevant thematic areas: climate and the environment, health and medicine, marine and aquatic research, the maritime sector, biotechnology, polar and space research, peace and conflict resolution, and development research. To find calls for proposals, refer to the NORGLOBAL programme and the INTPART programme.
