Where Statnett funds a project in its entirety, we may wish to hold the copyright to any results deriving from the project concerned.

The contract must be signed no later than two months after all parties have agreed that the project shall be initiated. No project may be initiated unless a contract has been drawn up and signed by all parties.


Project proposals to be considered in 2018 are no longer being accepted. A new deadline for submission of project proposals in 2019 will be published shortly.In the meantime, we are pleased to accept proposals, but we cannot guarantee that they will be considered before the deadline for submissions has expired. This also applies to projects related to the Research Council of Norway. Only proposals submitted via our project proposal form will be considered.
