The semester is already well underway with some different teaching in the Corona era. I encourage all instructors to join the Teams group “K2 digital teaching” which contains a lot of useful information and is a platform for experience exchange.
Also this year, UiB has announced infrastructure funding with a framework of NOK 15 million. The Faculty of Medicine can submit 3 applications. It is the dean of research, Marit Bakke, and research leaders from the institutes who rank the applications and choose the 3 to be sent to the university. The guidelines can be found here (Veileder Forskningsinfrastruktur 2021). In short, the following applies:
- Each application can be a maximum of 4 MNOK
- Own financing of at least 20% (of application sum) is required
- The faculty has set aside 1 MNOK to cover parts of this
- If two faculties join together, the application sum can be 8 million. Note that the application must be among the three applications submitted by both faculties.
The application form can be found here (Søknadsskjema). Applications from K2 are sent to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ranked by the leader group. Application deadline is 7/9.
