The lower amount limit of NOK 500 000 has been removed. It is thus possible to apply for a lower amount of support than NOK 0.5 million.

Purpose

The purpose of this supplementary funding is to increase the impact of Norway’s participation in Horizon 2020 projects. The scheme covers all thematic areas of Horizon 2020 and the target group is Norwegian participants in Horizon 2020 projects.

The funding must be used for additional independent activities that support or build on the Horizon 2020 project, and must not be used for activities already covered by EU funding. Nor can the supplementary funding be used for R&D or innovation activities.

The supplementary funding is intended to increase the impact of Norway’s participation in Horizon 2020 projects on society. In this way, Norwegian municipalities and other public bodies, businesses, special interest organisations and researchers will gain access to research and innovation results produced by the Horizon 2020 projects. Supplementary projects under Horizon 2020 Pillar 1 (Excellent Science) should also contribute to disseminating research results to other Norwegian universities, university colleges and research institutes.

Horizon 2020-projects that have already received supplementary funding are not eligible to apply.
