Digital Life Norway will again give a special reward and attention to the transdisciplinary research efforts in the year that has passed by awarding research prize(s) to the best transdisciplinary publication of the year! The deadline for nominating candidates was 1 March 2021.

Sharing ideas and collaborating


Amount of support: 50,000 NOK 

A major aim of the digital life initiative is to create convergence between life sciences and mathematics, physics, computer science or engineering. Working across disciplines is challenging and time consuming. We are therefore announcing research prize(s), in total 50,000NOK, for the best transdisciplinary publication(s) in the centre. All research projects within the centre can participate. The money will be transferred to the associated project(s) and can be spent within the frames set by governmental regulations.


The candidate study should fulfil the following criteria: 

  • The study should include both experimental measurements and computational work on a biological system, or on an engineered device developed for its integration with a biological system. 

  • The publication should come from a project within the portfolio of Digital Life Norway, with first or last author directly involved in the project. 

  • The connection with the Centre for Digital Life Norway should be clear from the affiliation or acknowledgements.

  • The study should be published or accepted for publication in an international scientific journal. It should be an open access publication.
