For academic institutions

The NFI supported academic institutions in Norway in attracting scholars of high international standing to Norway and awarded publication bonuses to faculty members at academic institutions for outstanding research contributions.

For students and PhDs

We offered talented students to pursue PhD studies in financial economics, and awarded PhD scholarships to students accepted at top-ranked international PhD programmes.

Scientific advisory borad

The board supported the NFI by providing independent, credible and impartial recommendations on academic matters, such as the evaluation of candidates for co-sponsored professorships, PhD programmes or submitted research proposals.
