For PhD students and postdoctoral research fellows who work in a project that applied for funding after 1 January 2017, please see the UTENLANDSSTIPEND call for proposals.



Amount of funding presumed available for this call for proposals:

Up to NOK 1.5 million per year.

Guidelines and important considerations relevant to all types of applications in this call for proposals:

The Norwegian-language call for proposals is the legally binding version.

One of the tasks of the FINNUT programme is to strengthen Norwegian research groups and expand collaboration between Norwegian and international research communities in the field of education. The programme also seeks to increase international researcher mobility and encourage Norwegian doctoral and post-doctoral research fellows and researchers to conduct a stay at a research institution abroad and international researchers to come to a Norwegian institution for a given period of time.

The programme therefore invites participants and partners involved in researcher projects, knowledge-building projects and innovation projects funded under the FINNUT programme to submit applications for Personal Overseas Research Grants and Personal Visiting Researcher Grants. The project number of the current project must be given on the grant application.
