Academic Visits

The academic institutions in Norway may apply for funding to invite scholars in finanical economics of high international standing for short visits.

The NFI Academic Visits Programme aims to strengthen the ability of academic institutions in Norway to attract scholars in financial economics for short visits and seminars and to strengthen Norges Bank Investment Management's ties with the academic community. The programme is also designed to enhance the education in financial economics for students in Norway.

An academic visit is eligible for support when given by a highly esteemed international scholar. A visit may consist of a combination of research seminars at academic institutions in Norway, graduate-level courses and undergraduate lectures at the academic institutions, and also include a seminar, lecture or similar event at Norges Bank Investment Management. For longer visits, it is expected that the visiting scholar contributes to teaching and research as permanent faculty members.

Academic institutions in Norway are encouraged to cooperate to attract international scholars to Norway. The NFI may increase its funding if the scholar holds seminars at more than one academic institution in Norway, or if the seminar/lecture is open to students and/or faculty members at more than one academic institution in Norway.

The allocation of funding is considered on an ongoing basis.
