The NORFACE Seminar Series scheme was set up to support research networking in social sciences within strategically chosen themes. The funding enabled researchers working within the seminar group to meet regularly and to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields.
NORFACE organized two rounds of Seminar Series. The first one was launched in 2006 and the second one in 2007. Both had the following objectives:
- To improve cross-border collaboration in the existing areas of strength and excellence of the Project Parties;
- To promote new emerging areas of research and areas where the added value of Project Co-operation can be demonstrated;
- To include young researchers in order to improve their opportunities for cross-border collaboration between researchers.
The Seminar Series offered researchers the opportunity to meet regularly to exchange information and ideas with the aim of advancing research within their fields. The Seminars could also provide training and participation opportunities for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers.
