In short, SNS funded networks are beneficial in a Nordic context and include researchers from at least three Nordic countries. Networks are co-financed and should have a plan for integrating and involving participants in regards to equality. We fund the following:

Annual Networks

The aim is to promote Nordic synergies within forest research and to establish closer collaboration between forest research communities in the Nordic countries. The network should involve participants from at least five countries. The expected outputs can include for example; arranging workshops, scientific meetings or open conferences. Networks could also design policy recommendations based on research findings, write large-scale research funding applications, produce peer-reviewed scientific papers, and create or maintain databases or websites. 


NordGen Forest – SNS Scholarship

The scholarships should contribute to common Nordic benefit by supporting education, continuing education and knowledge exchange for persons working or studying within forest seed or plant production, regeneration methods and tree breeding in the Nordic countries. Each applicant can be granted a maximum of 20 000 NOK. 
NordGen Forest administrate the scholarships, for more information please visit NordGen Forest website


NKJ-SNS Networks

The networks run for two years. The aim is to promote cross-sectorial networking between researchers and stakeholders in areas related to agriculture and forestry in the Nordic countries. The networks meet to tackle joint challenges, knowledge gaps and opportunities emerging from a transition towards a sustainable bioeconomy. 


Research projects

Research networks are funded for three years of research activities and adress specific focus areas of the SNS Strategy plan. 


Centres of Advanced Research (CAR)

CARs are funded for five year periods. The aim of CARs is to use of the collective Nordic research and development (R&D) resources efficiently, thereby increasing the return on R&D investments. Hence, CARs is expected to achieve synergies and avoid duplication in R&D work in the Nordic countries.
