Supplementary Funding for Norwegian Participants in Horizon 2020 Projects

See Result

Updated 11 September 2019: Due to multiple enquiries, we would like to clarify the following: Grants under the Scheme for Supplementary Funding for Norwegian Participants in Horizon 2020 Projects may not be used for research, development or innovation activities. If the budget includes payroll and indirect expenses, these should be calculated using the standard rates

If your ongoing EU project has already been granted supplementary funding under one of the Research Council’s thematic programmes (e.g. BIONÆR, HELSE-EU or KLIMA), it is not permitted to seek funding on the basis of that project under this call.

This is a pilot call for proposals. A similar call will be issued in 2020, assuming that relevant funding has been made available.

Updated 3 September 2019: Applications for supplementary funding must be submitted BEFORE the start of final year of a Horizon 2020 project. The Horizon 2020 project must have activity in 2020 or later. Projects are not required to have a full 12 months of their remaining project period from 1 January 2020 to be eligible for support.


The purpose of this supplementary funding is to encourage a greater number of Norwegian actors to take on a key role in Horizon 2020 projects and to give a wider range of Norwegian actors access to knowledge developed through Horizon 2020 projects. This will increase the impact of Horizon 2020 projects on research, society and trade and industry in Norway. 

The target group for this funding is Norwegian participants with a key role in a Horizon 2020 project. This funding must be applied towards independent activities and must not be used as additional funding for the Horizon 2020 project’s activities (see under “What can you seek funding for?” below for more information).
