Project manager - requirements 

All applications must be submitted through an applicant institution, i.e. a health trust/private non-profit hospital or a private institution with access to applications in Helse Sør-Øst.  

The PI (applicant) must:  

  • have a PhD 
  • be employed in at least a 20% position at the applicant institution, from the application deadline and throughout the project period 
  • have his/her main position at either the applicant institution or another institution in the region  

External project manager for applications from non-universities 

PIs who meet the formal requirements given above have the opportunity to submit one additional application as external PI for a doctoral or postdoctoral scholarship at a non-university hospital in the region. If such an application is submitted, the PI’s rights and responsibilities in the project must be specified in a written agreement between the PI’s institution and the applicant institution. 

External projects are not included in the annual quota per PI. Note, however, that external PIs who have been granted research funding in the last three years (project start 2022, 2023 or 2024) cannot submit a new application as external project manager in this call for proposals.  

Upper age limit for project manager 

Researchers over the age of 70 (born in 1954 or earlier) cannot apply as PIs, but can have a role as a project participant for the project of someone else. If a PI turns 70 during the project period, the application must be accompanied by a confirmation from the applicant institution that the PI responsibility will be transferred to someone else when this occurs. Use the template for such confirmation.
