New record in network applications
For the second consecutive year NorFA notes a new record in applications for support of research networks. By this years deadline we received 80 applications.
Compared with this, in 2003 we received 62 applications for research networks, which then was an increase of over 60 percent compared to the number in 2002. The number of applications for research training courses remains stable and high with 65 applications in 2004 compared to 67 in 2004. All applications will now be sent to three external panels for a review, and when the result is ready NorFAs board will make the final decisions regarding financial support.
