Evaluation of proposals: Research cooperation with India on

Report
Fra forskningssamarbeid til utdanningssamarbeid
- hvilke institusjoner i India samarbeider
norske forskningsmiljøer med?
Hans M Borchgrevink, Norges forskningsråd
SIU-seminar BI, Oslo 19 okt 2012
Key recommendation:
 Start Indo-Norwegian collaboration in education at
institutions with ongoing research collaboration
 Add master students to an ongoing or starting
research project which has Indian and Norwegian
supervisors. Requires special funding, as RCN does
not fund master students
 Take it from there and follow-up with MoUs on
collaboration in education
Norwegian research initiatives towards India (1)

Indo-Norwegian state-to-state agreement 2006 (researcher
exchange etc)
- Joint Working Group (JWG) Sci & Tech between
*Indian Dept Sci & Tech (DST) and
*The Norwegian Ministry for Education and Research
(facilitated by RCN)
- Programme of Cooperation (2009-2012) specifies research priorities

The Norw Government’s Strategy for Cooperation Norway - India
(2009)

to be strengthened

INDNOR 2010-2019: a 2.5 mill € per year research programme for
5+5 years for Indo-Norwegian research collaboration administered by
RCN
Initial priorities:
- Climate, environment, clean energy
- Societal development
- International political issues
Calls administered by the thematically relevant RCN programme/-board
Norwegian research initiatives towards India (2)

JOINTINDNOR: INDNOR call with Indian (activity-matched) co-funding, so
far with DST,
joint project description involving Indian and Norwegian research institutions
submitting proposals to DST and RCN, respectively. JWG approves.
Initial priorities:
• Climate research including CCS (carbon capture / storage)
• Renewable energy including solar energy
• Geotechnology and early warning systems for geohazards
• Nano-science/ technology related to renewable energy

General options for research collaboration
India – Norway
 Non-Norwegian researchers may be funded
via Norwegian research institution (e.g.
institute, university) – which is the RCN contract
partner
 Indo-Norwegian projects may compete for all
RCN funds via the Norwegian institution
 Norwegian Government ingoing Scholarships
open for India in competition with other countries
(RCN, 2009--)
 INDNOR & JOINTINDNOR funding earmarked for
Indo-Norwegian research collaboration projects
Indo-Norwegian research priorities
Programme of Cooperation (PoC) in
Science & Technology India – Norway (2009-2012)
 Climate research including ocean and arctic/polar research
 Clean (renewable) energy
 Geotechnology and early warning systems for geohazards
 Marine research – bioprospecting and polar research
 Nano-science/ technology primarily related to clean energy and solar
energy and medical issues
 Vaccines – human and fish/ animal, including vaccination programmes
and biotechnology of new vaccine development
Supplementary areas agreed during JWG Sci & Tech (2011):
 ICT
 Glaciology
 Medical research (cancer, diabetes, infectious diseases etc)
 Social aspects of climate change related issues (adaption)
