SNS – NKJ Networks

The call for NKJ-SNS networks is now closed. Next call will be January 24th 2018.

SNS is collaborating together with the Nordic Joint Committee for Agricultural and Food Research (NKJ) by financing Nordic research networks. The aim of this collaboration and funding opportunity is to promote international and cross-sectorial networking between researchers and stakeholders from the agricultural and forestry sectors.

These networks will form a platform for communication and
assess challenges, knowledge gaps and opportunities emerging from the transition towards a bioeconomy and could for example include plant disease in a changing climate, the use of big data in a bio-economy and land-use for biomass production in the Nordic countries.

The topics could also be wider, including for example invasive species and pests, the energy sector, food security, mitigating climate change, horticulture, aquaculture, apiculture or promoting of agroforestry systems.
