The Nordic countries have committed themselves to ambitious climate goals towards 2050 in terms of developing energy efficient and low-carbon societies. To achieve these goals, extensive green transitions are needed in all areas of the Nordic societies and economies, facilitated by promoting green economic growth, sustainability and competitiveness in both the public and the private sectors.
The main research and innovation funders in the Nordic countries are now launching the joint Nordic Green Growth Research and Innovation Programme in cooperation with NordForsk, Nordic Innovation and Nordic Energy Research. The programme will cover innovation, research and energy, as well as science and technology.
The programme has two objectives: to generate knowledge and policy advice about green growth and to stimulate innovative solutions that can accelerate the transition towards a sustainable society.
The total budget amounts to NOK 73 million.
Application deadline: 16 August 2016.
