Bigger budgets and more measures to boost Norwegian participation in EU research

The Research Council has received a budget increase for 2015 to promote greater Norwegian participation in the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. Two schemes targeting Horizon 2020 have been strengthened in particular: the STIM-EU stimulation scheme and the Project Establishment Support directed towards H2020 (PES2020) scheme. The Research Council expects further growth in the PES2020 scheme’s budget in 2016.

“Our aim is to increase mobilisation across the board in Norwegian research. In addition, we are seeking to give activities in certain strategic areas an extra push,” explains Kristin Danielsen, International Director at the Research Council. “One of our priority tasks is to enhance the visibility of, simplify and coordinate all Research Council support schemes targeting Horizon 2020.”

Schemes to boost participation in EU research

Project Establishment Support
The Project Establishment Support directed towards H2020 (PES2020) scheme has an overall budget of NOK 60 million in 2015.

Support for positioning activities
In the context of Horizon 2020, positioning activities involve increasing visibility, attracting the attention of and becoming a sought-after partner for top European research groups. Positioning activities are intended to enhance the ability of Norwegian actors to succeed under Horizon 2020. In 2015, the Research Council will be announcing NOK 5 million in funding for strategic positioning activities in areas not covered in funding announcements under its other programmes. A further NOK 1.5 million in funding for positioning activities will be announced for Norwegian research groups seeking to become part of existing Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) under the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

Support for establishment of EU networks
