UTFORSK Open Call for collaboration with Brazilian higher education and research institutions
Under the UTFORSK programme, SIU and Brazilian (CAPES) issue joint calls that aim to strengthen the cooperation between higher education and research institutions in Brazil and Norway, in all academic fields. Deadline: 11 September 2017.
Each project may be awarded up to 600 000 Norwegian kroner (NOK) from SIU, while CAPES will grant successful applicants financial support for up to 2 work missions (7 to 21 days) and 2 study missions (3 to 12 months) in Norway per year, in addition to 10 000 Brazilian reais (BRL) per year to be spent on research related items and services.
In order to be eligible for support, two applications must be submitted. Norwegian institutions submit applications to SIU, while Brazilian institutions submit a corresponding application to CAPES.
The call is open to projects with a project period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2020. Projects that are selected for support may have the possibility of applying for financial support for an additional two-year period, but only if the necessary funding is made available by both SIU and CAPES from 2020.
