Portfolio plan Global Development and International Relations

Interventions and activities

Research on global development should inform a knowledge-based foreign and security policy decision-making and public debate and contribute to development in developing countries. This means that research must be able to combine depth and range. In areas that are important to Norway, it is crucial to have in-depth knowledge, as well as the ability to view the same topics from multiple perspectives. At the same time, however, it is important to maintain knowledge along a broad horizon. Thus, the Portfolio for Global Development and International Relations must connect with other Portfolios to promote a wide range of new insights. In order to achieve the goals set for the Portfolio for Global Development and International Relations, there is an obvious need to cooperate with the following Portfolios: Democracy, administration and renewal; Energy, transport and low emissions; Oceans; Health; Climate and polar research; Land-based food, the environment and bioresources; Enabling technologies; Education and competence; Welfare, culture and society.

There is also a need to align the Portfolio's activities with initiatives deriving from the EU framework programme, Nordic Research Cooperation (NordForsk), Belmont Forum, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GLOPID-R), Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) and other international R&D-funding organisations and multi- and bilateral initiatives.
