External funding

External funding

There are numerous opportunities for seeking project funding, both nationally and internationally, in addition to funding as part of the institution's basic budget.

Funding applications for research projects must always be approved by the unit manager and / or the faculty management.

The R&D administration at the faculty and the centre provides information and guidance to those seeking external funding for collaborative research at OsloMet. The central R&D section assists in the guidance and can quality assure applications and facilitate for networking.

Note that project fundings are OsloMet’s property.


Researchers at OsloMet participate in several cooperation programmes supported by government funding. The faculties inform about subject specific support schemes and funding sources. You can read about more general programmes for collaborative research and funding in Norway here.


OsloMet plays an active role in European research programmes such as Horizon 2020, the EEA Financial Mechanisms, Erasmus + and the sectoral programmes. The R&D section supports researchers and research environments that wish to apply; see website about support for the development of EU applications.

Nordic countries

The Nordic Council of Ministers has established Nordforsk and NICe in order to develop the Nordic region into a leading region for research and innovation. The focus areas are linked to national strategies, and are in line with the EU's vision of a European Research Area (ERA). See funding sources in the Nordic region.


OsloMet has a tradition of global cooperation. The university can help with research and research collaboration within a global development perspective. There are several opportunities for academic cooperation and external financing for the academic environments at OsloMet; see Global partnership and overview of international funding sources.
