The Fellowship is part of the Inspire mobility scheme, it contributes to the diverse career development of researchers, both broadening and deepening their skills. The fellowship is open for students and researchers in the National IOR Centre of Norway (NIORC), UiS, and UiB as well as for students and staff from France(Uni Nice, BRGM) and Germany (Uni Heidelberg and Uni Stuttgart). PhDs and young researchers work with senior researchers and/or industry contacts on selected topics.
We aim for 3 to 6 months student exchange and shorter periods for the permanent staff. We will use RCNs rates for ”Utenlandsstipend” currently 16 000 (single) NOK/month and 31 000 (families) NOK/month. Guest researcher grants (54 000 NOK first month, 30 000 NOK for additional months) will be used for staff from Germany and France coming to Norway.
