Funding of new convergence environments

UiO:Life Science funds convergence environments – interdisciplinary research groups that address major challenges within health and environment. In November a third call will be published. 

Six convergence environments were selected after an application process in 2016/2017. The second call was announced in the autumn 2018, with eight new converge environments being funded for 2019-2023. We expect this time to fund five or six projects. The call will be published on 3 November. See the timeline for other important dates.
