The funding scheme for independent projects (FRIPRO)

The funding scheme for independent projects (FRIPRO) comprises a national competitive arena for research funding for projects in all fields and disciplines.

Activities under the FRIPRO scheme are to promote:

The Research Council is offering up to NOK 500 000 in support to applicants who submit a new proposal within two years of submitting the original one.

The other application types employed by the FRIPRO scheme include:

  • Researcher Project
  • Young Research Talents
  • FRIPRO mobility grant
  • Support for Events
  • Personal Overseas Research Grant

Further information about the application types is available on the FRIPRO webpages and in the calls for proposals.
