Support for Events Focused on the Functioning of the Financial Market and Ethical Awareness
This call for proposals is to provide support for events that focus on the functioning of financial markets and that will promote greater understanding of relevant ethical issues in this area. Support from the Finance Market Fund is to target spheres of activity relating to the securities market (see Section 7 of the rules set out for the Finance Market Fund – in Norwegian only). Support may also target banking and insurance activity, other areas of the financial market, and accounting and auditing.
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 have a trigger effect. You must also describe the potential ramifications if the funding amount awarded is smaller than what was originally sought.
The fund is designed to help to increase knowledge about how financial markets function and to promote greater understanding of relevant ethical issues in this area.
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.
Please see the rules set out for the Finance Market Fund at www.finansmarkedsfondet.no (in Norwegian only).
