Funding

The Research Council allocates funding for research and innovation to enhance knowledge about the polar regions.

The thematic priority areas are climate and the environment, natural resources and sustainable activity, and policy and management. 

We have a variety of financial mechanisms, some with open-ended deadlines as well as a number of scheduled application deadlines per year. 

Applicants compete with one another for funding. Approved Norwegian research organisations may apply for funding under calls. Non-Norwegian research organisations can be project partners.
