In light of the Ministry’s ‘Strategy for Research and Education concerning the Arctic’ launched in November 2016, INP now welcomes applications specific to Arctic research networks. The objective, and one of the initiatives in the Strategy’s Action Plan, is to finance new international research networks with a view to establishing new collaborative relations within Arctic research. Grants may be awarded to projects between researchers from Denmark and one or more of the following selected partner countries: China (incl. Hong Kong), India, Israel, Japan, USA, Brazil, Turkey, South Africa, the Republic of Korea as well as Canada, Russia, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Each project can be supported with a maximum amount of up to DKK 200.000 excluding overhead/administration expenses.
