Portfolio plan Global Development and International Relations


To realise the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, research and innovation must endeavour to inspire new forms of co-production, learning and sharing of insight and knowledge across complex subject fields, thematic areas and institutions. Framed by research, Norwegian development and humanitarian policy should be effective and promote progress in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). And high-quality research and innovation should encourage new generations of researchers and innovators to work towards a sustainable and prosperous future.

Our aim for Norwegian society in 2050 is that it is resilient and informed, and that R&D efforts have ensured both a solid national knowledge base and preparedness, and resulted in extensive contributions to global knowledge production. Further, Norway aims to contribute to a world order based on justice and the rule of law, and Norwegian security, values, interests and sovereignty are safeguarded.

This portfolio plan describes how the Research Council aspires to achieve the ambitions outlined above. The plan describes actions that are to be implemented through the portfolio board's own investments and actions that are expected to be realised through investments made by other portfolio boards.
