Good news in a difficult situation!

800.000 NOK to 12 additional AFG projects. The SSF and the RCN wants to make sure that as soon as Svalbard and the rest of the world opens up research will hit the ground running.

Some AFG projects will be cancelled but most can be postponed. We have turned every stone, emptied every pocket and have managed to get funding for 12 additional projects from the previous AFG allocation.

If your project has been funded, either fully or partly, you will receive a mail in a few days with more information.

All the best from the SSF team!
