The organization has opened a funding call for research into the distribution of health and welfare.
The call on the distribution of health and welfare is implemented under the Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare and aims to increase the understanding of how demographic, social, environmental and biological factors affect the distribution of health and wellbeing as well as welfare systems at large.
The call budget has been set at a maximum of 3.67 million euros (NOK 30 million) per project. Funding will be granted for five years.
The Nordic Programme on Health and Welfare is a cooperative effort between the Academy of Finland, the Danish Council for Independent Research | Medical Sciences, the Icelandic Centre for Research (Rannís), the Research Council of Norway, the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (FORTE), and NordForsk. The Programme will run from 2014 to 2018.
