In order to promote the development of new research areas and programmes within the humanities and social sciences in the Nordic countries, NOS-HS supports explorative workshop series, consisting of two to three workshops held in the Nordic countries. The series of workshops must have a strong research focus and involve collaboration between researchers from different Nordic countries. NOS-HS funds proposals which aim at establishing new ambitious research projects and networks and at preparation of research proposals to international research programmes. NOS-HS encourages the applicants to involve early stage researchers and non-academic stakeholders in the workshops.
In the exploratory workshop call 2021, the instructions for applicants will emphasize the importance of clearly stating the core scientific ideas and their scientific relevance in the application. Applicants are asked to elaborate how the scientific ideas relate to present state-of-the-art research debates.
The main features of the workshops are face-to-face meetings, creating and strengthening new connections and exploring ideas together. If travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic persist, interactive online workshops or hybrid forms of workshops are encouraged.
