Congratulation project fund recipients of spring 2021!

We received 27 applications this year, 9 from UiB, 6 from UiT, 4 from UiO, 7 from UNIS and 1 from HVL. The proposals covered a wide range of themes including student involvement, SoTL, course and program development, software development, events, and virtual field components.  With so many excellent proposals from all over Norway it was a real challenge for the evaluation committee to decide which of the projects we were going to fund this semester. The committee decided to fund 15 projects and below you can see the corresponding author, project title and affiliation of each of the projects that received funding. The next call for project funds will be in September 2021.
