food nutrition : Food, Nutrition and Health

The NordForsk call of the Nordic Centre of Excellence Programme on Food Nutrition and Health, will open on Friday September 1st. The date has thus been slightly postponed from Mid-August, previously set for opening up the call.

The application process has been changed by the Steering Committee of the Programme in order to provide applicants with more time for teaming up with suitable partners, and for outlining activity and management plans for the intended networks of universities and research institutes.

Two steps
The selection of Nordic Centre of Excellence candidates for the period 2007-2012, is carried out in two steps. Deadline for the first step of expressions of interest is now set for Wednesday November 1st, whereas step 2, for those selected to send full and final applications, will take place between Friday December 1st and Monday January 15th, 2007.

On September 1st, the Programme definition and other documents incl. an application form for step 1 will be made available for all applicants. The call will be displayed on the NordForsk web pages and on the pages of the national Research Councils of the five Nordic countries. There will also be links to other relevant research institutions within each of these countries.

According to the revised schedule, contract negotiations settled, activities will commence under the new Programme beginning of April 2007.
