Preface by the Research Council of Norway :

The scheme for national research schools (FORSKERSKOLER) was launched in 2008. The purpose of the scheme is to enhance the quality and raise the academic level of PhD education in Norway based on national networks of cooperating institutions. Since the scheme was launched, the Research Council has issued three calls for proposals and allocated grants to a total of 22 national research schools. Five were started up in 2009, ten in 2013 and seven in 2015. A Nordic scientific programme committee was appointed in 2013, with responsibility for assessing grant applications, monitoring the progress of the FORSKERSKOLER scheme and serving as the evaluation panel for the mid-term evaluation in 2013 and in 2016/2017.

The task of the evaluation panel has been to: 1) evaluate the quality of and progress achieved by the ten research schools which were awarded funding in 2012 and launched in 2013; and 2) to provide recommendations as to whether funding should be continued to cover the full eight-year period or terminated after five years.

Continued funding is recommended for all ten schools to cover the full eight-year period, according to the proposed budget.

This report summarises the findings of the evaluation panel.
