NORHED seed funding shall be used with the purpose to develop an application for a main NORHED project, within one of the NORHED sub-programmes.  The main call for NORHED will be announced on 13 November 2012, with a deadline 15 March 2013.

300 Applications

Altogether, NORAD received around 300 applications for seed money. The Sub-programme Natural Resource Management, Climate Change and Environment received the highest number of applications.

- We have an exciting evaluation process ahead of us. There are many applications, and the immediate impression is that many of them are well directed towards NORHED’s overall objectives, says Paul Fife, Department for Global Health, Education and Research in Norad.

The applications will be assessed by Norad /MFA departments, and the Embassies of the relevant countries. Applications are assessed against defined criteria of relevance and quality.

The result will be announced at www.norad.no/norhed on November 30th 2013.
