Amount of funding presumed available for this call for proposals:

Funding for Personal Overseas Research Grants will be taken from the FRINATEK budget. Personal Overseas Research Grants are highly prioritised.

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.

The Research Council of Norway (RCN) wishes to encourage greater participation by younger Norwegian researchers in international research cooperation. International experience is important when building a career in research, and increases the chance of succeeding in national and international competitive arenas.

FRINATEK therefore offers funding for overseas research stays for

  • doctoral and post-doctoral fellows who receive funding for salary by FRINATEK, in projects that started in 2017 or earlier (projects granted funding from a 2016 call for proposals or earlier
  • project managers for Young Research Talents projects funded by FRIPRO

For RCN-funded doctoral and post-doctoral fellows in FRIPRO projects starting in 2018 or later, you apply through a separate call open for all relevant candidates funded by the RCN. Please find this call for proposals here.

The Personal Overseas Research Grant covers research stays at a research organisation abroad for parts of the project period. You can apply for a Personal Overseas Research Grant at any time throughout the year, as the call is open-ended, and we will process your application starting from when we receive it.

The research stay must last at least 3 months, and cannot result in an extension of the fellowship or project period. For persons with school-aged children who are not bringing their family, longer stays may be split into shorter periods. Please see detailed information regarding this in part 3 of the call for proposals. Choose "Personal Overseas Research Grant" in the list to access this part of the call.

It is possible to apply for a Personal Overseas Research Grant several times throughout the same fellowship period. Each research stay must last at least 3 months, and FRINATEK covers a maximum of 12 months abroad for each person.
