The call for NOS-HS Workshop grants will open on January 20

NOS-HS invites proposals for funding covering series of Nordic workshops. The aim of the grant is to promote research collaboration and development of new research areas and programs within the humanities and social sciences in the Nordic countries. The budget allocated for the call is approximately 11 million SEK, and NOS-HS will support a maximum of 25 series of workshops.

The call will open on January 20, at 2 PM.

The call text and the instructions for how to apply will be published on the NOS-HS webpage for calls for proposals when the call opens.

Start preparing!

Make sure that your organisation is in Prisma. If not, they should create an organisation account in Prisma ASAP – The Swedish Research Council must approve your organisation before you can submit your application!

You can already create a user account in Prisma and start filling in you personal information and CV. The participating researchers also need accounts in Prisma.

We would already like to draw your attention to a few important issues related to the application process:

  1. Three Nordic researchers from three different countries must participate in the grant application: the applicant, and two participating researchers.
  2. You apply through Prisma, the grant application system of The Swedish Research Council. You can already create a user account in Prisma and start filling in your personal information. You can start writing your application when the call becomes visible in the list of calls for proposals in Prisma at 2 PM on January 20.
  3. The applicant and the participating researchers must all create user profiles in Prisma and fill in their personal information and CV. This information will then be linked to your application. You will not be able to submit the application without it.
  4. The grant must be administered by a Nordic university, Nordic Higher Education Institution, or another Nordic public organisation that fulfils the Swedish Research Council’s requirements for administrating organisations. All approved administrating organisations have an organisation account in Prisma. If your organisation does not yet have an organisation account, they should create one as soon as possible. It may take up to two weeks to get a new administrating organisation approved and the organisation account activated. You cannot submit your application before your organisation has been approved. Many Swedish universities and research institutes already have organisation accounts in Prisma. Concerning organisations in the other Nordic countries, check the list of currently approved Nordic (not Swedish) administrating organisation here. You can always contact your administrating organisation to find out if they have an organisation account in Prisma.

More information and instructions on how to apply will be published on January 20. The call will close on February 23 at 2 PM.

Take a look at the Prisma user manual and the Frequently Asked Questions to get help related to the application system!
