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. 

The dedicated budget for 2024 of NOK 500 000 is, however, exhausted.  

Nordic Energy Research invites PhD students and researchers to apply for the call again starting January 1, 2025, when the call reopens with a new budget for 2025. Until then, we would like to encourage interested applicants for next year to check the call text for more information and preparation.
