OsloMet Nets More Than 20 Grants from Norwegian Research Council

The successful projects illustrate the breadth of research conducted at the university.

The OsloMet research community received good news in late December when the Norwegian Research Council (NFR) announced the results of its latest grant application cycle.

The Research Council is a Norwegian government agency that supports and promotes research and science. It is also the largest source of research funding in Norway.  

Altogether, the Research Council received 2,884 applications in the following categories: Research Projects, Young Research Talents and Mobility Grants.  

OsloMet was awarded 18 grants in the Research Project category, the third highest total among Norwegian universities.  

“This is wonderful news,” rector Curt Rice declared.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our colleagues who have worked so hard on these applications." 

Projects From a Range of Academic Disciplines
