    Please read the Guide for applicants and topics linked under each call before you start writing your proposal.

    Some general tips for your proposal development:

  • Besides FRIPRO and the health-programmes, check out programs VAM (big budget and relevant call), SAMKUL; NORGLOBAL 2, SAMRISk, UTENRIKS to see if your idea fits
  • Get an early start! Open an application February 27th
  • Be bold in describing your competences and intentions!
  • Dedicate time and begin with the Impact-section of the project description template
  • Describe carefully how the funding will be used, when and by whom. Discuss with your economist
  • In the health programs; real user-involvement from the start
