The aim of the seminar was to raise awareness about the ERC’s funding opportunities in Norway and its role within the broader European Research Area.

It provided an opportunity for researchers to learn more about research funding opportunities, to ask questions, and to meet and discuss directly with the ERC and fellow researchers from across Norway.

The EU Office would also like to thank the distinguished assembly of speakers, as well as Professor Fanny Duckert from the UiO, who agreed to act as chairperson.
