NCMM awards 6.7mNOK in Collaborative Grants
NCMM is pleased to announce allocating 6.7 million NOK in funding for 11 new collaborative projects between NCMM group leaders and the wider Associate Investigator network.
The Centre aims to continue to develop its scientific and technological capabilities by establishing strong collaborative links with key scientists and research groups across Norway. NCMM’s Associate Investigators are drawn from a group of outstanding scientists based in Norway, with expertise compatible with NCMM’s research areas.
The seed funding is designed to help spark more research collaboration between NCMM Group Leaders and the Associate Investigators.
Ahead of the seed funding call NCMM organised a national seminar for the Associate Investigators to present their research. For this seed funding round there were 20 applications from the extended Associate Investigator network, all of which were of high scientific quality. The total amount applied for was twice the amount available. It is very positive to see that there is enthusiasm for collaboration between the NCMM group leaders and the wider Associate Investigator network.
