Fra Norads utlysningstekst på norad.no:

Norway invites university partnerships to submit applications for NORHED funding. The focus for this call is quality improvement for primary and lower secondary education.

As part of the Norwegian focus on Education for Development, improving quality in education is a top priority. The teacher is acknowledged as the most important factor to improve quality in teaching and learning. Norad wants to encourage university collaboration on education and research with the aim to revitalize the learning situation for children, leading to improved teaching and learning. This call is for applications to the Norwegian Programme for Capacity Building in Higher Education and Research for Development (NORHED). NORHED aims at strengthening Higher Education Institutions within key areas for development.

Thematic priorities
The focus for this call is quality improvement for primary and lower secondary education. Projects focusing on early grades of primary school will be particularly interesting. Special priority will be given to the topic of teacher education with a strong focus on pedagogy, innovative pedagogical approaches and teacher-pupil relations.

Project designs can also include one or more of the following components: teaching in the local context, curriculum development, literacy and numeracy, instructional languages, inclusive education for marginalized groups including children with disabilities, and innovation and technology in teaching and learning. Focus on gender and education is a priority, with special emphasis on girls’ education. Projects may also include capacity development within management and administration of the higher education institutions. Applications must be based on needs and priorities identified by the partner institution(s), and must be linked to government policies and priorities at national and/or regional level. It is a clear intention in the short- to medium-term to achieve synergies with other Norwegian-funded programmes and initiatives.

Country priorities
The Norwegian government has identified a number of focus countries for development cooperation in general, and some for educational development cooperation in particular.The target countries for this call are countries identified as priorities for the development cooperation within education: Ethiopia, Haiti, Malawi, Nepal, Niger and South Sudan.

The projects must aim at building capacity at one or more universities in one or more of these six countries. Regional collaborations with other universities is encouraged, but the role of other participating countries should mainly be limited to developing capacity at the institution(s) in the focus countries. The role of each partner must be specified in the application, including a clear description of how each participating institution will contribute to building the institutional capacity in the focus country.
