At UiO, a total of 66 research projects received funding from the 2021 call from Research Council of Norway (NFR). This was announced 24 of June. The call had application deadline February 10 this year.
The projects receive up to NOK 12 million each from NFR. Of the Principal Investigators for projects from the University of Oslo who received support, are five are from the subject field of geosciences. The support is provided through 'Forskerprosjekt for fornyelse', and within the theme group Science and Technology. Two projects in the "Young Research Talents" category are supported.
The projects range widely in the field of geosciences, see titles below.
Global glacier modelling: Do non-linear feedbacks matter for century-scale projections?, Regine Hock, GeoHyd
DYPOLE: Dynamics of polar confined basins - The Eurasia Basin from breakup in greenhouse to present in icehouse conditions, Jan Inge Faleide, CEED/GoG
Is the Earth's core the hidden reservoir of noble gases?, Razvan Caracas, CEED
Young Research Talents*
- POLARIS - evolution of the Arctic in deep time, Grace Shephard, CEED
- Global snow depths from space-borne remote sensing for permafrost, high-elevation precipitation, and climate reanalyses, Désirée Treichler, GeoHyd
All projects that have applied for funding have been carefully evaluated by expert panels. NFR received nearly 2,500 applications by the deadline, and a total of 260 projects passed through the needle eye. Only the best projects get funding.
The Department of Geosciences congratulates!
