The Research Administration Department at UiB has announced funds in the University’s Strategic Program for International Research and Educational Cooperation (SPIRE) for 2018. The program aims to support UiB’s internationalization strategy 2016-2022. This is an important instrument for strengthening the university’s allocation of external research funds and enhancing academic quality through international cooperation.
SPIRE funds can be applied in two categories:
- SPIRE funds for international networking and partnership cooperation
- SPIRE-guest researcher funds
Scientific staff at UiB can apply for SPIRE funds. Applications are sent through the department to the faculty. The faculty sends all applications together to the Research Administration Department. Only applications that have been assessed, rated and submitted by the faculty within the application deadline will be processed.
Deadline for application: 15 February.
Due to work on K2 before this deadline, the department requests applications to be sent to the head of department no later than Monday 12 February.
