Research Training Courses

The objective with this funding scheme is to offer research training (PhD) in specific fields where the number of qualified students cannot be reached in one country alone. The courses can be held within all scientific areas.

Each Research Training Course may receive up to 400.000 NOK.

The research training courses usually take place in the Nordic or the Baltic countries, and should be specialised intensive courses (minimum 5 days) for PhD students and young researchers (at postdoctoral level).

No future calls are planned within this funding scheme.
