The board of the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst) has distributed financial resources to new research projects for 2015. Of the in total 551 incoming applications 105 new projects were granted support (19.1%). The competition was especially hard in the category "open project support", where 12 projects got full backing.
A substantial amount of the resources are given to young researchers. Support is given to 52 doctoral and 38 post doctoral stipendiates, as well as to four researcher grants and three career grants. The latter category is for young outstandig researchers planning to establish an independent research group. Oslo University Hospital accounts for about 75% of the research in the region.
