Impact evaluation of the Research Council of Norway’s support measures to increase participation in EU -funded research
Publication date: 13 December 2013 | Report language:
Norway’s 2012 research bill stated that increased Norwegian participation is virtually a political necessity should Norway elect to participate in Horizon 2020. The reason is that there is a risk that the difference increases between what Norway might have to pay to participate, and the funding that Norwegian scientists and Norwegian industry together receive. The Norwegian Government therefore believes that there may be a need for further incentives to promote participation in EU-funded research programmes.
The Research Council of Norway wanted to design its future support measures for increased Norwegian participation in EU programmes based on insights into the impacts of its measures to date, and it therefore commissioned Technopolis to undertake this impact evaluation.
