EU funded research at UiO

UiO has participated in the EU's framework programmes for research and development since 1991, and UiO has been particularly successful within the thematically free areas  ERC and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

UiO holds about half of all ERC grant in Norway, and have had a large increase in the number of MSCA proposals and grants. This is in line with our goal to strengthen UiO's position as a competitive and attractive participant in the European Research Area.
