Our two main funding sources are the yearly CoE allocation from The Research Council Norway (RCN), as well as the means from the Department of Economics. Our ambition is to expand our research activities with additional funding from other relevant programs, both from the RCN and from EU. At the time being we are partners in one EU project and one other project from the RCN. The amount of ESOP researchers involved in these external projects varies from project to project.
