Nordic Energy Research will launch a call on 8th Dec. 2014 for the amount of NOK 80 million. Funding will be focussed on a small number of large Nordic Flagship Projects.involving three or more Nordic countries and will be the largest instrument in the next research period (2015-2018).

In addition to this call there will be a second call in the Spring of 2015 for approx. 20 MNOK.

Projects will have a greater focus on delivering mid-term results, a focus that may be reinforced by a staggered funding format, the details of which will be determined when planning the programme. Industry involvement and co-financing will be sought. A share of Nordic Energy Research’s direct research funding is earmarked for the integration of researchers from the Baltic Sea region.

The thematic focus of the Nordic Flagship Projects will be determined by the project proposals that successfully receive funding. In addition to criteria for scientific quality, the two-stage call text will require that pre-proposals fulfil detailed criteria based on the three principles of: Nordic added value; System perspective; and Politically relevant research results.
