Dear all, Welcome back to a new semester!
As you know, the Municipality of Bergen has tightened the rules again after the infection increase. You now have to wear a face mask where it is not possible to keep a distance, and home office is recommended for employees who are dependent on public transport as far as possible (see also email I sent out on Wednesday).
When it comes to teaching, UiB follows the plan to have as much on campus teaching as possible. The measures will apply until 22 August.
It is time to apply for funding from UiB/MED for research infrastructure. Unfortunately, this year it will not be possible to apply for top funding for the establishment of projects that have recently received funding through the NFR infrastructure scheme. The call for proposals is divided into two categories, main projects (0.5-4 Mio NOK) and pilot projects (up to NOK 200,000). Application criteria and guidelines can be found here Søknadskriterier og veileder forskningsinfrastruktur. The department must rank the applications, therefore the deadline for sending the application to me is set to 3.9.2021.
Infrastructure that benefits several people will be given priority. You have to use the application form Søknadsskjema
