FRIPRO is Norway's largest program for independent research, and allocated close to 1 billion NOK to 120 research projects in 2016. Because the main citeria for achieving a FRIPRO grant is scientific merit, it is also prestige associated with this grant. The category 'young research talent' was introduced in 2013 to stimulate young eminent research talents. The competition is hard also in this category, but UiS' own program TOPPFORSK, enhance the chances to succeed in this category.
