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.

Support for research stays abroad and in Norway
The Research Council encourages greater internationalisation of Norwegian research and offers funding for research stays abroad for researchers from Norway as well as for research visits to Norway for researchers from other countries.
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.
