The Research Council of Norway would like to invite you to the annual FRIPRO, IKTPLUSS and ROMFORSKNING seminar for Young Research Talents. We wish to gather all project managers of both ongoing projects and projects that will start during 2018. The seminar will be held at the Research Council's offices at Lysaker in Oslo. The seminar is free, and we will cover necessary expenses for travel and accommodation (see more information in the tab "Travel and accommodation").

The seminar is a meeting place where you as young researchers can meet and exchange experiences and establish connections. You will have a chance to meet the invited speakers and employees at the Research Council. The seminar includes invited talks, a workshop, a course in project management and various social activities.

The main topics for the 2018 seminar will be:

  • Research leadership: "How to be a leader?" and "Administrative challenges"
  • A one-day course in managing a research project and group

The seminar will be held in English.

Registration form

Deadline for registration: Sunday February 11th at 23:00

We aim to make the seminar a meeting place for Young Research Talents, where project managers get the opportunity to get to know others who have received a Young Research Talents grant. To facilitate this we will distribute a list before the seminar with names, research institutions, project titles, fields of research and profile pictures of all the participants. Please email a profile picture of yourself to stbr@rcn.no.
