  • About NSfK research support

– NSfK encourages researchers in the beginning of their careers to apply for research grants or that they are included in the application.

– NSfK would also like to draw the attention to the possibilities of applying for financial support up to 100 000 NOK for working group meetings and contact seminars with joint Nordic perspectives.

– For the requirement of Nordic relevance, the applicant is to show his/her knowledge of the Nordic research situation, identify researchers in the research field in the Nordic countries and give an overview of which studies so far have been done.

– The applicant is also asked to describe how the project is made available for policy makers.

– The research which the support is meant for can be granted to researchers based in the NSfK member countries.

  • Council has made several efforts to simplify the form; general questions about the project such as background, purpose, theory, method, criminological or criminal policy relevance, project period, “output”, other funding. Only a few attachments are asked for.
  • Please do note that NSfK’s maximum limit for OH is 20% on salary costs.
