Short biography:

Friederike Hoffmann has been the research coordinator at Geophysical Institute since 2013. Her main tasks are informing about upcoming funding opportunities, supporting scientists during the pre-award phase,and training early-career researchers in proposal writing.

Since 2009 she has been working as an expert evaluator for the European Commission, where she evaluates project proposals and monitors on-going EU projects in different programs. She holds a PhD in Geosciences, and her scientific background is in marine microbiology and biogeochemistry.



Horizon Europe, the 9th research framework program of the European Union, is starting this year. Many researchers at the Bjerknes Centre are working on research projects funded through the previous EU framework program, Horizon 2020, and are well aware of its advantages to perform excellent research and to build strong international networks. There is less awareness yet about opportunities for the Bjerknes community in the upcoming Horizon Europe. I will give an overview about the opportunities to receive funding for climate research in Horizon Europe. I will present the most relevant research programs, their planned budget and timing. I will show you where and how to find relevant call topics and deadlines. I will also explain planned changes in proposal templates, evaluation criteria and evaluation processes. The purpose of this seminar is that you are ready to go for Horizon Europe when the first calls for proposals are officially published in April 2021.


This seminar will be presented by zoom, March at 14:15. Link can be obtained by contacting the seminar committee.
