Functioning of the Financial Market and Ethical Awareness – Funding for Research Projects
The Finance Market Fund is designed to help to increase knowledge about how financial markets function and to promote greater understanding of relevant ethical issues.
Funding under the Finance Market Fund is to support research, education or public awareness initiatives related to the functioning and role of the financial market. Projects may address deficiencies in the system, ethics and good business practices in the relevant areas as well as consumer interests. Funding will not be granted for individuals to pursue ordinary occupational education activities.
This call for proposals is to provide support for research projects that focus on the functioning of financial markets and that will promote greater understanding of relevant ethical issues. Support from the Finance Market Fund is to be targeted towards spheres of activity relating to the securities market (see Section 7 of the rules set out for the Finance Market Fund (in Norwegian)). Support may also be targeted towards banking and insurance activity, other areas of the financial market and accounting and revision.
Applications must clearly demonstrate that the project is of relevance in relation to the purpose of the Finance Market Fund and that the funding will promote activity that would otherwise not have taken place. The grant application must also describe the potential ramifications if the funding amount awarded is smaller than what was originally sought.
