The objective of the call is to enhance the modes of interaction between research groups and local indigenous communities when designing research projects.

“This call is developed to increase the active involvement of local indigenous communities in research on livelihoods in the Arctic, and the additional fund to Greenland is strategically important to secure active involvement of Inuit groups and Inuit researchers in Nordic collaboration”, says Arne Flåøyen, the Director NordForsk.

The maximum amount of Nordic funding that may be sought is NOK 1 million and the maximum amount of Nordic funding for proposals including partners in Greenland is NOK 1.5 million.
