Norad is inviting research institutions and research organisations based in the Sub-Saharan Africa to submit applications for funding. The main purpose of this call is to finance high-quality research for development based on local needs within thematic priority areas. Norad provides mainly programme support, but can in some cases consider core support. Norad is making approximately 35 million NOK per year available under this call. The funding will support 4-6 institutions or organisations for a period of 3-5 years.
