In this interdisciplinary programme, the primary emphasis will be on social sciences and humanities. Research should have a bearing on Sweden, while integrating global and circumpolar perspectives to a high degree. For the whole programme, which is to last four years, Mistra will provide funds of up to SEK 30 million. Counterfunding amounting to at least 25% of Mistra’s contribution is required.
The new programme will build further on experience from the project-based ‘Mistra Arctic Futures in a Global Context’ programme (2011–13), but is being announced as a freestanding initiative.
