The purpose of this call is to strengthen basic, ground-breaking research of high scientific quality through interdisciplinary collaboration, and to advance the research front. Addressing the societal challenges of today and tomorrow calls for radical leaps in knowledge. Grant proposals will be accepted for projects within all disciplines and research areas. By providing large-scale allocations and requiring collaboration between researchers from different subject fields, we are seeking to produce new knowledge that would not be possible to obtain without interdisciplinary cooperation. Projects will be financed under the Fellesløft IV joint funding initiative between Norway’s research institutions and the Research Council of Norway.
