To facilitate a rapid launch of the first Call for proposal, the CEPI secretariat is collaborating with the Research Council of Norway (RCN) by using their established online application system for submissions.

Please note that:

  • Only proposal forms and related documents submitted through this system will be considered.
  • CEPI encourages applicants to familiarise themselves with the online application portal in the weeks leading up to the deadline so applications are submitted as smoothly as possible.
