In the future, the NKJ-funded research networks will be granted larger amounts. At its most recent meeting, the board decided to increase the amount possible to apply for from SEK 200,000 to SEK 300,000.
Every year, NKJ has one or more different calls for networks that, for example, organize conferences, work with policy-making, write joint major applications for research funding and more. We do this to promote Nordic co-operation in forest research. We believe that the effect of research will be greater if we work across national borders and exchange knowledge and perhaps also equipment, experience and power.
In order to receive financing from us, it is required that you have external co-financing with at least half the budget. This will still be the case, after the increase of the amount. We believe that the impact of our money will be greater if we add a little more.
Welcome to apply for money from the ongoing call, which has three focus areas: soil health, plant health and Nordic food security and self-sufficiency in agriculture.
We will also open a new call towards the end of the summer, which will be in reindeer husbandry. This will be announced in connection with our matchmaking day which brings together people in the Nordic reindeer husbandry. Matchmaking day is free of charge and takes place online on August 25, interested parties are welcome to register!
