The Faculty of Medicine has a temporary economic surplus for 2018 due to positive results in 2016, which provides budget growth in 2018; transfers of unused funds from 2017; as well as the need for lower transfers in the basic fund than 20 million NOK in total for 2019.
This means that the departments including K2 will be given an opportunity to increase the basic appropriation beyond what is budgeted for 2018. K2 is important for the faculty’s budget growth, and it is great that some of this now will benefit us.
The order from the Faculty are that the measures can go to research, including equipment that can be purchased this year; teaching, including equipment that can be purchased this year; and other measures such as HSE.
Research group leaders are challenged to propose measures within the framework of approx. 0.5 mNOK and that equipment cannot have a cost beyond the EU limit for tender. The last is because tenders take time, and the faculty wishes to spend the funds in 2018.
Unfortunately, there is a very short deadline for making suggestions. This is set to February 9 at the Faculty level. We need time for an internal process on K2, too, why our deadline for you is during February 5. I am very sorry for this ultra short deadline. All proposals must come through the head of the research groups.
Enjoy the weekend!

A new year and an earlier deadline from Research Council of Norway (RCN) means it is time to plan the application process for spring. We will continue the K2 tradition with submission of application sketches and a joint meeting for applicants to the programs BEDREHELSE, BEHANDLING, HELSEVEL and FRIMEDBIO. Thursday 15 February is the proposed deadline for the sketch and we have reserved Wednesday 7 March at 13-16 (seminar room 7th floor) for the meeting. The intention with this meeting is to present the sketch and receive constructive feedback from experienced colleagues which is useful for the preparation of the final proposal. You can send your sketch to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last years’ results from RCN showed the importance of applying in the program that fits the research project. I therefore want to draw your attention to a seminar in Bergen on 7 February where representatives from RCN will present the programs BEHANDLING, BEDREHELSE, HELSEVEL og HORIZON 2020 (Program). They will present what is expected from the various programs, so I encourage you to attend if you have the possibility to do so.
Other relevant deadlines during the coming months are GLOBVAC, Novo Nordisk, Kreftforeningen og Extrastiftelsen, to name a few. I also want to remind you about BFS Starting Grant, a program aiming to recruit and develop excellent research leaders at UiB, where the deadline to send a sketch and CV is 12 February, as presented in the newsletter last week. Research advisors also want to join the digitalization processes taking place at UiB. Relevant research deadlines will therefore be published on this page, while announcements relevant for education can be found here. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement please let me know.
Tuesday this week RCN visited Bergen to talk about possibilities for the public sector in research. There will be an increased emphasis on this subject, so if you have any contacts in the municipality I want to remind you about “Offentlig ph.d.”. The municipality and RCN fund the candidate 50-50 while we are a partner representing the educational institution. More information will be made available during March and the deadline will most likely be beginning of April.
Finally, I would like to advertise a bit for myself. I would be happy to assist you in one or all of the areas represented below. I am at your assistance until deadline 25 April at 13, but it is best to give us more time. This I will leave up to you as to what fits best.
Here are recent publications with contributions from K2 based on last week’s search on PubMed (and optionally articles that have not been included in previous lists). This time the list includes in total 33 recent publications. The entries appear in the order they were received from NCBI. If you have publications that are not included in this or previous lists, please send the references to Johnny Laupsa-Borge.
International Centre UiB invites researchers and PhD candidates who are going on research mobility in 2018 to seminar.
The mobility seminar will cover the following topics:
- Information regarding UiB routines
- Forms to the Norwegian government

This is a nice opportunity to get to know other outbound researchers and share experiences.
It will be time to ask questions.
Section for pathology in Sentralblokken has since January 2018 permanently locked all the entrance doors to the section.
This is necessary due to accreditation. Previously, the doors in the second floor have been unlocked during normal working hours.
Those of you who need to visit or contact people in the pathology environment, should from now on make an appointment before visiting. Alternatively, you can approach the reception at the section on the second floor. There is a door bell with instructions by the entrance door.
Should you require repeated visits to the section, you can ask to be given access. Please bring your HUS employee key card.
