In order to encourage the PhD students to spend time at top-level academic institutions, ATTR funds mobility grants. The grants are awarded based on the relevance of the host institution for the applicant's PhD project, and its relation to the aims and profile of ATTR.
ATTR award mobility grants with a large extent of flexibility: You can plan a long stay or many shorter stays to one or several international acknowledged academic institutions.
You may apply for up to 100 000 NOK.
The application should contain a research plan, confirmations from host institution(s) and PhD supervisor, and a budget.
Grants awarded should be used within the two upcoming academic years.
Application deadline: February 15 every year (detailed application instructions are made available in January the same year).
