Nordic Energy Research invites PhD students and researchers (including post-doctorates) to apply for the call Networking and Event Support.

Nordic Energy Research wants to strengthen the exchange of knowledge and skills among Nordic PhD students and researchers. Based on our experience, PhD students and researchers improve their communication and dissemination skills, acquire new competences, and add perspectives on their research by holding events that enable interaction with other researchers, private industries, authorities, and the public, among others.

Therefore, a budget is dedicated under the Nordic Energy Research Mobility Programme to financially support events and networks by Nordic PhD students and researchers. The available budget is NOK 200 000. It is possible to seek funding from the available budget until 31 December each year. At the turn of the year, the available budget will be updated for the new year.
