Main content

Applications for 2019-2020 must include researchers in permanent positions at both CMI and UiB, based in research groups at respective institutions. All scientific staff mentioned in the application by name should be asked about their involvement and plan to be actively involved in the project.

The thematic areas of the application must reflect the strategies of both institutions. New, preferably cross-disciplinary, collaborations within the strategic priority areas are encouraged.

The collaboration funds are intended for activities that aim to initiate new projects and long-term relations beyond the activity set out in the application (such as new proposals to the Norwegian Research Council or EU funding). It must be clearly stated in the application how the project will contribute to such broader objectives.

Successful applications will be granted funding between NOK 50 000 and 200 000. The UiB/CMI cooperation committee (Samarbeidsutvalget) will evaluate the applications.

If applications include funding for seminars and/or workshops or other joint activities, we encourage using our common area of dissemination, Bergen Global.

A short project brief with a budget must be written in the application form (maximum 2 pages) together with a CV for the project manager. The form must be sent to tore.satersdal@uib.no by 14 June, 2019 (subject line: Collaboration Funds CMI-UiB 2019).

Questions about the application process can be directed to Project Director, Steinar Hegre at CMI (steinar.hegre@cmi.no /458 65426) or Deputy Director Tore Sætersdal of Global Challenges, UiB, (tore.satersdal@uib.no / 5558 9323).
