First allocations of SSF’s strategic funds

Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) has in total 3,8 million NOK available for Workshops and Support Funds in 2012. We received a total of 17 applications by the 15 February, 2012 deadline. The total amount of the applications was 4,85 million NOK. Seven of these applications have now been granted SSF support.
