Independent Basic Research Projects - Mathematics, Physical Science and Technology (FRINATEK)

The funding scheme for independent projects (FRIPRO) comprises a national competitive arena for research funding for projects in all fields and disciplines.

FRIPRO scheme shall promote:

  • scientific quality at the forefront of international research;
  • boldness in scientific thinking and innovation;
  • careers for young research talents.

Grants are awarded on the basis of the scientific merit of the project. When assessing grant applications, boldness in scientific thinking and scientific innovation demonstrated in the proposals will also be emphasized.

The FRIPRO scheme seeks to increase international mobility among early career researchers and to help Norwegian applicants compete successfully under international funding schemes. It is therefore expected that research fellows under FRIPRO projects incorporate a stay abroad into their fellowship period and that project managers of Researcher Projects and Young Research Talents projects apply for international funding during the project period.

The FRIPRO scheme employs the following application types:

  • Researcher Project
  • Young Research Talents
  • FRIPRO mobility grant
  • Support for Events

Researcher Projects are collaborative projects led by established researchers with experience well beyond a post-doctoral period.

Young Research Talents is targeted towards young researchers in the early stages of their careers who have demonstrated the ability to conduct research of high scientific quality.

The FRIPRO mobility grant is a three-year grant designed to promote mobility and career development among younger researchers. The grants are co-funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme’s Marie Curie Actions (MCA COFUND) and the Research Council of Norway.

Support for Events may be sought for larger-scale international researcher conferences that are arranged on a regular, rotating basis between different countries.

Funding will not be announced for FRIPRO Toppforsk projects in 2016. A funding announcement is planned issued next year with an application deadline in May 2017.

Further information is available under the specific requirements and guidelines for the relevant application type.

Grant applications must be submitted to one of the following activities:

  • Independent Projects – Humanities and Social Sciences (FRIHUMSAM)
  • Independent Projects – Medicine, Health Sciences and Biology (FRIMEDBIO)
  • Independent Projects – Mathematics, Physical Science and Technology (FRINATEK)

The grant proposal will be processed by the activity to which it has been submitted. If the grant proposal addresses topics in the interface between two activities, the Research Council may, in consultation with the applicant, decide to redirect the proposal for processing under another FRIPRO activity.

For more information about the FRIPRO scheme and the grant application review process, please see the FRIPRO webpages.
