Three projects at the University of Agder will receive funding from Norad’s NORHED programme in 2021.
The Faculty of Social Sciences receives funding for two projects and the Faculty of Engineering and Science receives funding for one project. UiA has been successful with three out of nine applications to the NORHED II call for proposals. The goal of the projects is to strengthen the quality of higher education and research in developing countries
These are the projects that will receive funding:
Norad received 199 applications for NORHED funds. 60 of them will get funding. Total amount applied for is NOK 3.1 billion, while the total budget for the call is NOK 1.1 billion.
“Due to the high competition and limited funding available, many relevant and high-quality projects have unfortunately been rejected”, says coordinator for the NORHED programme Jeanette da Silva in a press release from Norad.
