​The research project ViEWS - A political Violence Early-Warning System has received an ERC Proof of Concept Grant as the only project in Norway in this round of competition. 

​ViEWS is led by Research Professor Håvard Hegre. The project aims at developing, testing, and iteratively improving a pilot Violence Early-Warning System (ViEWS) that is rigorous, data-based, and publicly available to researchers and the international community. By doing so, the project seeks to address the challenges of preventing, mitigating, and adapting to large-scale political violence.

We congratulate Håvard and his project team!
