The aim of SNS funded networks is to:
- Strengthen forest research in the Nordic region.
- Bridge gaps between research and practice.
- Promote collaboration across sectors within a sustainable bioeconomy.
- Link national research projects which otherwise would be carried out on a national level, but where considerable positive outcomes can be reached through a wider regional scope.
A network is funded for the duration of 1-2 years. Networks should include from at least three research institutions in the Nordic* region. Each gender must be represented by a minimum of 40% of the participants in the network. Co-funding of at least 50% of the total budget of the network is required.
