Participants in projects should include at least three researchers at research institutions in the Nordic region, and successful applicants may receive funds from SNS of approximately 100-350 000 SEK/year for three years, covering at most a third of the total budget for the project.
SNS strives to enhance benefits for the Nordic region and contribute to development of a sustainable society. For 2019-2021, SNS wished to support research projects exploring ways to manage forests without destroying nature and extract resources sustainably from them without compromising other values such as biodiversity and ecosystem services.
The next call will be announced in 2021.
