The SFF scheme gives Norway’s foremost scientific circles the opportunity to organise their activities in centres that seek to achieve ambitious scientific objectives through collaboration and long-term basic funding.
A total of 34 centres have been invited to submit a detailed application to be awarded status as a new Norwegian Centre of Excellence (SFF).
The Research Council of Norway will be announcing funding for the fourth round of Centres of Excellence (SFF) with an application deadline of 25 November 2015.
The Research Council of Norway will promote more pioneering basic research of high international calibre and enhance career opportunities for younger researchers across the entire range of funding instruments. High-quality basic research will be a mainstay of the Council’s thematically oriented initiatives.
