If you are planning to apply for Research Council funding we recommend you learn about the grant application form early in the process.
Seven tips for filling in your grant application
Completing a grant application to the Research Council is time-consuming and there are many potential stumbling blocks. Here are some tips for how to fill in and submit your application successfully, well in advance of the deadline.
General application requirements
A detailed description of the requirements for grant applications is found in the call for proposals . Applications that do not satisfy these requirements will be rejected.
The Research Council uses standardised application types. The application type describes which assessment criteria and requirements apply to the application. On the "New application types in 2019" page you will find an overview of the application types.
Conditions for awarding state aid
The state aid rules set the guidelines for how much funding the Research Council can allocate to companies. These rules stipulate what types of activities are eligible for support, which costs relating to these activities may be covered in part or in full, and the maximum aid intensity that may be granted for the various activities.
Information security, publication and access to documents
We have guidelines for dissemination and publication of project data, handling of requests for access and securing of sensitive data. These guidelines are based on Norwegian law.
