Overseas research grants

To encourage doctoral candidates receiving funding under the Industrial Ph.D. scheme to spend time at a university abroad during their project period, the Research Council has now made it possible for candidates participating in ongoing projects to seek support for a research stay abroad. Applications for personal overseas research grants have an open-ended submission deadline, i.e. they may be submitted at any time during the year, and applications will be processed on an ongoing basis.

Personal overseas research grants may only be sought for doctoral candidates who receive funding under the Industrial Ph.D. scheme and have degree conferring institution in Norway.  Funding will be allocated for research stays abroad within the project period for the project with which the candidate is affiliated. Research stays may have a duration of 3-12 months, but must not involve an extension of the project period. Doctoral candidates who have a degree conferring institution abroad are not eligible for such funding.

Applicants must complete and submit the application form for Other support for funding under this call for proposals. However, the general requirements for the Personal Overseas Research Grant application type will apply, with the exception of the assessment criteria on the bottom half of the webpage.

Funding as de minimis aid
As from 2017, financial support for Overseas Research Grants from The Industrial Ph.D. Scheme is awarded to companies as de minimis aid. This means that applicants may receive maximum EUR 200 000 in de minimis aid from public sources during a period of three accounting years. This applies to applications received as from 1 march 2017.
