According to the news of the Norwegian Research Council, professional communities from industry, academia, health sector, and public administration play a strong part in the competition for EU research and innovation funds. Over the past seven years, Norwegian actors have received more than 1.5 billion EUR through Horizon 2020, and the share has risen steadily. Presently we count almost 1900 EU projects with Norwegian partners involved. From these, the AI-Mind brought the attention of the Research Council and is evaluated as highly important. The University of Oslo receives the most money, which calculates to 163.9 million EUR. Of that, more than 8 percent is granted through the AI-Mind project.
