From 2023, Norec will introduce new deadlines for our grants

– We want to give applicants more predictability and better time to prepare for the exchanges. Therefore, we are now introducing fixed application deadlines, says Director of Programmes, Margunn Indrebø Alshaikh.

If you are applying for a feasibility study, you can expect a response within four weeks. Applicants for a collaboration agreement, can expect a response well in advance of commencement of their exchange project.

– The aim of the new application deadlines is for applicants to get a response earlier and therefore have better time to plan their exchanges. We will continue to have a close dialogue with the applicants in the application process, says Alshaikh.
