Trond Mohn Foundation has contributed to the recruitment of 39 excellent scientists from all over the world to the University of Bergen.

The Trond Mohn Foundation (formerly the Bergen Research Foundation), based on donations from Trond Mohn, Marit Mohn and Frederik Mohn, has allocated more than a billion Norwegian kroner in grants to research institutions in Norway since 2004.

The foundation has pursued the goal of recruiting young researchers and bringing them to Bergen. In collaboration with the University of Bergen (UiB), a four-year recruitment programme, the Starting Grant programme, was put in place to achieve this goal. During the past fifteen years, 39 talented young people have been awarded the fellowship grant.

Disse are the current Starting Grant Fellows:

Helen Frances Leslie-Jacobsen - Lilya Budaghyan - Selina Våge - Andreas Born - Kjetil Våge - Håvard Haarstad - Konrad Tywoniuk - Charalampos Tzoulis - Steffen Leth Jørgensen - Harald Barsnes - Arjan Schakel - Yvette Peters

The University of Bergen and Trond Mohn Foundation established the TMS-UiB Career Program for the grantees in 2019.
