When relevant, the project should involve cooperation with international researchers.  

For applications for external funding coordinated by NTNU, only applications from project leaders will be accepted. When the application is coordinated by another institution, NTNU staff may apply for funding to develop their subproject. It is a condition that the project leader will develop an application for external funding, and that the application meets the requirements of the Research Council of Norway or other relevant funding bodies.
