Thematic initiatives

The Tromsø Research Foundation contributes to several different thematic initiatives. The most recent initiatives are within the fields of pure mathematics, nuclear medicine, and Arctic research (the Mohn Prize).

In order to initiate a thematic initiative TFS normally has a dialogue with potential collaborators, followed by a multi-step process that may lead to an invitation to deliver an application regarding the selected thematic initiative.

Thematic initiatives can be linked to specific regional strengths or challenges, preferrably multidispilinary topics where the Foundation can make a long lasting difference.

All applications to TFS has to be achored at the appropriate UiT leadership level and will be evaluated by independent experts.
