Background and activities

Senior EU adviser and Coordinator of Søknadshjelpen..

I help researchers at the MH Faculty and St Olavs hospital to find funding from EU Research and Innovation Programmes.

Work areas:

  • Promote EU funding opportunities and help you to find a call: I can help researchers to find EU funding opportunities suited to their particular research interests and and career stage. The EU advisers at MH have a good overview of EU funding opportunities within health and are happy to present relevant opportunities for the various departments and research groups at MH.
  • Reviewing your grant application: The EU advisers at MH have extensive experience with EU funding schemes and can review your proposal to help you to best address the evaluation criteria/target it to the scheme in question
  • Navigating the administrative requirements/the EU portal: I can assist researchers with interpreting the requirements of the call, with the online application forms in the EU portal and any other administrative requirements, for the EU application.
  • Training: I can provide training in how to write grant applications (in general, and targeted to specific EU schemes).
