The programme, which has a total budget of 65 million Norwegian kroner (€6.7m), will also look at cultural heritage and the politics and governance of migration.

Arne Flåøyen, the director of Nordforsk, said that application rates from the UK had been particularly high, showing that there is a lot of interest in collaboration. He said the number of applications, 218 in total, was far beyond what the programme would be able to fund.
