Time to apply for founding from the Research Council

The Covid-19 pandemic has upturned our daily lives and much of the research, both clinically and experimentally, has stopped. On the other hand, the work situation provides the opportunity to work well with applications.

The application forms from the Research Council are now available and at the same time the deadline for the Research Council has been moved to May 20, giving extra time for application writing. Already, those who intend to apply must contact the economist they have been assigned to plan the budget work. Amra will help with application writing and will give priority to those who have announced that they will apply.

This year, the Researcher Project for Scientific Renewal is open to all research areas; further Research Project for Young Talents (age less than 40 years), 2-7 years after dissertation and Three-year Researcher Project with International Mobility.

Good luck



Thanks to everyone at K2 who contributed with spare protective gear. Parts of the equipment has been delivered to Legevakten, and the rest will be delivered to HUS this Friday.

Both are very grateful for our contribution!

Admission to digital ph.d courses

The Faculty of Medicine is concerned that we will have a course offer for PhD candidates who are in different phases of ph.d run.
Therefore, we are encouraged to be flexible when it comes to enrolling students in the various courses. This means flexible enrollment deadlines , and possibilities for external students to attend.

Refunding of travel and tickets

We are receiving questions concerning how to write and post cancelled travels and tickets.

The criteria are that you first follow the instructions as described in UiB’s website, Coronavirus – information for students and employees (contact travel insurance, cancellations etc.). If the guidance is followed and there still are costs that must be paid, this will be covered by UiB. This must be documented in the travel claim. Contact your economist if you have any doubts about how to post your travel claim/reimbursement.
