Practical information for current Fellows

Information about research costs, reports and publications for current postdoctoral Fellows in the Scientia Fellows II programme (2019-2024).

Research costs

The Scientia Fellows programme supports research costs up to 54 600 NOK per year of your fellowship. This sum is available at your institute and can be used in agreement with your Host. Research costs can be used for covering various expenses like:

  • Costs related to your research (for example lab consumables)
  • Conferences, network meetings, courses and other activities to enhance your career prospects
  • Expenses for Norwegian courses

Any unused research costs financed by the Scientia Fellows programme can be carried forward and used in the next year. However, a part of the amount may be financed from other external sources, which have other requirements. We therefore ask you to consult your economy controller assigned to your research group and Host for more information. 

Open Access

Fellows must ensure Open Access (OA) to all peer-reviewed scientific publications relating to their results either by OA publishing or by utilizing Green OA repositories, such as DUO Research Archive ( at UiO.

Fellows are expected to disseminate their results at various levels as widely as possible. In addition to OA publishing, this could be conferences, publics engagements or social and printed media.

If you have any questions related to OA, please contact The Open Access-team at the University Library:
