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

General requirements

  • The Norwegian-language call for proposals is the legally binding version.
  • Grant applications that do not satisfy the general requirements for the appropriate application type and/or the requirements and guidelines stipulated in this call for proposals will be rejected.
  • Only one grant application per project manager may be submitted in response to this call for proposals.
  • Only ongoing projects under the HAVBRUK2 programme may submit applications for Personal Visiting Researcher Grants or Personal Overseas Research Grants
  • A maximum of NOK 300 000 in funding may be sought for Project Establishment Support (PES).
  • The project period is not to exceed one year.

General guidelines

  • Sustainable growth in the Norwegian aquaculture industry is an underlying principle for all project funding under the HAVBRUK2 programme.
  • In the same way, good fish welfare, ethical production, and safe and healthy food are fundamental principles for all programme activities.
  • Research on climate change and related impacts and adaptation has been given priority in various national plans. In general, the programme attaches importance to research that enhances insight into climate adaptation, emissions reduction and environment-friendly energy.
  • The Norwegian Government and the Storting are seeking more integrated initiatives relating to the Arctic region, in which research is a major component. The HAVBRUK2 programme will give priority to activities that include perspectives relating to the Arctic.

Funding is available for Project Establishment Support for international projects, Personal Visiting Researcher Grants and Personal Overseas Research Grants. Special priority will be given to collaboration with researchers in the EU, the US, Canada, China, Japan, India, Chile and Brazil. Collaboration with researchers in other countries will also be of interest. The Research Council employs designated instruments for Project Establishment Support for research cooperation with EU countries (see the PES2020 call for proposals); thus, proposals for such projects will not be given priority under this call.
