The Joint Committee for the Nordic Research Councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS-HS) promotes the renewal of science and international collaboration between researchers.
NOS-HS funds Nordic exploratory workshops in the humanities and social sciences, where researchers gather together around a jointly developed new theme to establish contacts and develop joint research projects. There must be explorative elements in the setup of the workshops with early-career researchers in active roles. The workshops can also be used to prepare joint applications for international funding calls. If COVID-19 restrictions persist, online and hybrid workshops are encouraged.
The workshops are designed for researchers at different career stages from at least three Nordic countries. In the present call, funding is available for a series of workshops (2‒3 workshops) that will take place in 2022‒2023. The funding is 29,000‒43,000 euros per series.
In the 2020 call, NOS-HS funded 34 series, which will organise 103 Nordic workshops for more than 2,200 researchers. The 2021 call opens on 9 February and closes on 31 March 2021 at 16.15 Finnish time.
