International mobility

UiO:Energy sees the promotion of increased international mobility as a research-promoting and competence-enhancing initiative. For this reason we offer research grants for master’s and PhD fellows as well as scholars at UiO that work within the energy domain. 

UiO: Energy has defined four main research areas across the university and the funding for the activities for which funding is applied for should be thematically placed under one or more of these. Open ended application deadline.

Who can apply

Master students, PhD students and researchers at UiO may apply for short term stays abroad.  Priority will be given to students or young researchers, but full time researchers may also apply for funding for travel of strategic value. 

What can you apply funding for?

Students/fellows/researchers at UiO may apply for grants covering research and competence-increasing activities or attendance at relevant conferences abroad, or, courses or short-term visits to international research groups lasting from two to eight weeks.
