Ratatosk Mobility Enhancement Travel Grant

Purpose

The goal of training is to raise competence in staff and end users which leads to more effective and productive work by the Nordic e-infrastructure community. The benefits include more efficient operations and use of resources and an improved capability for the researchers in conducting research.

Who can apply

This grant under The NeIC Ratatosk Mobility Enhancement Programme is intended to provide or supplement travel funding for staff and end users (researchers) of the Nordic e-infrastructure community who can benefit from access to training programs offered in other Nordic countries.

Requirements

Only courses/modules directly related to current national and Nordic e-infrastructure training needs will be applicable for support. The application form is mandatory and can be found below. Technically the specific course or module must be embodied in the NeIC Training Calendar. If you think the course you are interested in is of Nordic relevance and therefore should be part of the NeIC Training Calendar, please contact Anne-Marie Bach. (All courses on the NeIC Training Calendar are available for application).

Deadline

The application process as described here has cut-off dates once a month, but not outside the holiday periods. The cut-off dates are announced at NeIC’s training page.

Assessment of applications

On a monthly basis an assessment will be done by Anne-Marie Bach and Michaela Barth.

Criterias for assessment are

  • Impact of the training
  • Rarity of the course
  • Timeliness
  • Distribution of gathered knowledge afterwards
  • Significant amount

Process

The applications will be reviewed and information about the outcome will take place at the latest 5 working days after the cut-off date.

In case of a successful grant, the applicant will have to prepay the travel and will then be reimbursed upon sending the original bills physically and after having filled out the survey provided. Review of each application is done by the Ratatosk training programme manager and the NeIC representative in the Steering Group of the Ratatosk training programme. The notification process is typically 1 week after review (5 working days).
