How are applications evaluated and funds dispersed?
Staff seminar with Jill Walker Rettberg Research Council of Norway grants: How are applications evaluated and funds dispersed?
In recent years the Research Council of Norway (RCN) has introduced gender perspectives in research as a mandatory criterion in the assessment of grant applications. EU funding programmes such as Horizon 2020 have similar requirements. This has led to an increase in expectations for grant applications, and affects how they are evaluated.
The Ministry of Education and Research, NHH’s owner, expects that the school is working hard to improve integration of the gender perspective in research. As part of NHH’s ongoing work to improve research quality and gender balance, the school is arranging a seminar and discussion on gender perspectives in research grant applications.
