Call: Support for grant writing

We offer support for the application process to the Research Council of Norway (RCN) calls "Research Projects for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies” and “Collaborative Projects for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies” which should be highly relevant for researchers in DLN and represent one way to recruit the DLN projects of tomorrow. 

Call deadline for grant writing support was July 5th (evaluation by July 16th)

Maximum funding request: 100 000 NOK

Who can apply: DLN invites applications from projects already connected to the centre and also from those that currently are not part of the centre but are open to joining.

Eligible activities: For example, support for hiring early career researchers for the writing process, or organising workshops for proposed collaborators. We are also open for other suggestions.

As the first Digital Life Norway projects are gradually coming to an end, we will be recruiting new projects into the centre. These RCN calls should be highly relevant for researchers in DLN and therefore represent one way to recruit the DLN projects of tomorrow. We encourage researchers to take a look at the announcements and consider applying.

Call texts for Research Projects for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies” and “Collaborative Projects for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies”, both with application deadline September 15th, 2021.

Requirements for your application

The application form contains a template where the required information has to be filled in. The application needs to include information about applicant/contact person, proposed collaborators, and briefly state the idea of the proposed project. We also require a description of what the support is needed for, including a tentative time schedule and budget. All participants must agree on the application. 

Since this is meant as support for those who are open to joining the centre, we strongly encourage that the DLN focus areas are considered in the project application: data management, responsible research and innovation (RRI) and transdisciplinarity, innovation and commercialisation, career development, and communications. We are available for guidance on these matters.

Depending on the total amount of money applied for in the centre, DLN may need to prioritize or adjust the support for each granted application.
