(Videresendt fra How to get European Funding at The Faculty of Medicine - MH)

This page provides information to researchers at The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences to find out more about European funding.

There are many ways to receive funding from European funds, from programmes within Horizon 2020 to funding from the Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI’s) to specific funding for collaboration with European Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME’s) within the Eurostars programme, and much more.

The Participant Portal from the EC will always have the latest information, though we strive to keep these pages updated with specific relevant information for The Faculty of Medicine. The different programmes, their intention and goal, as well as specific call topics within the European framework (Horizon 2020) are explained in the following paragraph and linked pages.  

Contact #

For any questions about EU funding, contact our EU advisors Boukje Ehlen or Emma Walton.

NTNU's PIC-code is 999977851. 

Current Call information #

Current call information can always be found at the European Commission pages, but we give an overview of the most relevant deadlines here, and an overview of topics for the Health workprogramme here

Funding for proposal writing #

To support the proposal writing phase of the project, you can apply for Prosjekt Etablering Støtte (PES), with which our EU-advisor will help you gladly. In case your effort is not yet concrete enough for PES, DMF offers a fund for preparatory stages of an EU project.

Please note that every European application requires approval from your institute leader. 

Part I. Scientific Excellence: #

Horizon 2020 will support the best ideas, develop talent within Europe, provide researchers with access to priority research infrastructure, and make Europe an attractive location for the world's best researchers, with the following instruments:

Part II. Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies #

Horizon 2020 will have a strong focus on developing European industrial capabilities in Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), to support the development of technologies underpinning innovation across a range of sectors, such as:

Part III. Societal challenges #

This programme aims to increase effectiveness of research and innovation in responding to key societal challenges:

Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI’s) #

The overall aim of the Joint Programming process is to pool national research efforts in order to make better use of Europe's precious public R&D resources and to tackle common European challenges more effectively in a few key areas:

European commission on: European Research Area: JPI

Eurostars #

The Eurostars Programme aims to stimulate “research performing SMEs” to lead international collaborative research and innovation projects by easing access to support and funding. It is fine-tuned to focus on the needs of SMEs, and specifically targets the development of new products, processes and services and the access to transnational and international markets.

Research-performing SMEs are SMEs that dedicate at least 10% of their turnover or full-time equivalent (FTE) to research activities.

A project needs to have at least 2 participants from different (EU) countries, of which the coordinator should be the R&D-performing SME.

Evaluation happens centrally via the Eurostars office in Brussels, but funding (and funding rules) will be established through the Forskningsrådet.
