Green Transition

NordForsk proposals for research projects on the Green Transition

For a successful green transition, new and research-based knowledge is paramount. In this Nordic-Baltic initiative, the focus is on three topics which are all important in the work towards a just green transition.

The Green Transition call focuses on central features of our societies, such as equality, democratic engagement, participation, and representation. 

Norwegian participants can apply for support for projects that focus on democratic engagement and citizen-involvement in the green transition.

Awarding state aid

The RCN funding to research organisations is reserved for non-economic activities and is not considered state aid. Organisations with both economic and non-economic activity must have in place a formal separation between economic and non-economic activities. 

The state aid rules set the guidelines for how much funding the Research Council can allocate to companies. Companies serving as partners may have parts of their project costs covered in accordance with the General Block Exemption Regulation Article 25 (Commission Regulation (EU) No. 651/2014). The level of support (aid intensity) permitted will depend on the undertaking’s size and the type of activity that is carried out. 

Conditions and concepts are to be interpreted in keeping with corresponding conditions and concepts in the state aid rules. In the event of conflict between the text of the call and the state aid rules, the latter will have precedence.
