NOK 450 million for Young Research Talent

Sixty-four young, talented researchers have been awarded a total of NOK 450 million to implement their research projects. 

The funding will come partly from the ordinary budget of the FRIPRO funding scheme for independent projects and partly from the joint funding initiative for young researchers between the universities and the Research Council of Norway.

Under the joint funding initiative, the universities and the Research Council will provide NOK 300 million in funding over three years to projects for 42 Young Research Talent grants. Additional funding for 22 such grants will be provided under the Research Council’s ordinary FRIPRO budget. 

“Thanks to this initiative, our most promising young researchers will now have the chance to pursue their own ideas, refine their own research directions and establish their own research groups. We are forming the foundation for excellence in research for the future. This is a crucial investment for Norway as a knowledge nation,” says Minister of Education and Research Torbjørn Røe Isaksen.
