The FRIPRO funding scheme promotes independent research by providing funding for basic research and ground-breaking projects in all fields of research, where project ideas originate with the researchers themselves. Researchers from various stages of their careers can apply for funding under the FRIPRO program.


More information about the FRIPRO program can be found in the official Research Council of Norway website.


FRIPRO & Enspire Science

FRIPRO seeks to fund high-gain research that challenges important subjects and leads to significant breakthroughs on a global scale. A closer look at FRIPRO’s evaluation criteria unravels a striking resemblance and similar spirit to the written and “unwritten” requirements of the highly prestigious ERC funding scheme – of which Enspire Science is a leading expert.


Although different in structure, the key FRIPRO award criteria follow similar attributes, expectations and excellence standards, as in ERC.


Enspire Science has been leading researchers on their ERC journey since 2007, and working directly with FRIPRO applicants since 2017. As such, we have a dedicated and customized methodology which addresses all the unique aspects of the FRIPRO funding scheme.


During our work together, we’ll ensure to evaluate the following FRIPRO expectations:

  • Ground-breaking nature
  • High-risk
  • High-gain
  • Innovative and bold approach
  • And more…
