Norwegian Research Council is planning a new announcement of the SFF-arrangement (Centre for Groundbreaking Research) in the forthcoming year, and has evaluated the possible adjustments of the existing arrangement based on the recent evaluation, see the article in P H¿yden. According to Svenn-ge Dahl, head of the Research Administrative Department, the NRC has the annual 155 million kroner to be distributed among 8-10 new SFF candidates in the next round of applications.
This autumn, the Department of Physics and Technology has come up with two possible applications, along with several other possibilities that are being evaluated. As is the case with application processes, and especially for larger funds such as this one, it is of utmost importance to proceed in accord with the valid conditions which will be specified in the announcement. Until then, it may be wise to read the NRC's requirements and guidelines Krav og retningslinjer for SFF. It would be great if all of you planning on participating in SFF-applications inform us at the Department Administration about your plans.
