Funding from the Research Council
The Research Council allocates NOK 10 billion annually for research and innovation. We have four main application deadlines per year as well as a number of funding schemes with open-ended deadlines. Applicants compete with one another for funding. In 2019, we are making some changes to our application types and assessment criteria and introducing some common procedures for grant application processing across the different funding instruments.

The STUD-ENT funding scheme is the Research Council’s national competitive arena in which students, together with higher education institutions, may seek financial support for realising their knowledge- and/or research-based business ideas.
We provide support for the commercialisation of results from research projects that have received Research Council funding. This applies to results that may be of benefit to society and also encompasses projects with participation from the business sector.
Webinar for applicants
We hold webinars for research organisations and organisations in the private and public sectors in order to provide insight into what different applicants need to know about the new application types and assessment criteria being introduced by the Research Council this year. This video is about the application types “Researcher Projects” and “Knowledge-building and Collaboration Projects” and is relevant for research organisations (46 min., in Norwegian).
