FRIPRO awards hang high and are awarded in fierce competition. Expected approval is around five percent in the coming years. This means that only the best researchers with particularly good applications have the opportunity to reach the top. The academically innovative character and scientific quality of the projects (the assessment criteria Research quality – potential for moving the research frontier and Research quality – quality in R&D activities) are the most important when applications are selected for funding from FRIPRO.

Dean Ivar Gladhaug is very pleased with this year's award. - It is gratifying to see that five of our research communities have won with their applications this year, he says and congratulates Joel Glover, Kevin Sean O'Connell, Ingrid Agartz, Stian Foss and Evandro Fei Fang on the award, and wishes them the best of luck the work.
