Fellowships & Support
Internal Grant Agency
The Internal Grant Agency (IGA) has been established in 2021 in order to decide about the allocation of (1) retained earnings from the knowledge transfer (applied research), (2) public funding with designated use or (3) other resources targeted to support grant competition. The operations of the IGA are governed by the Policy on AAU Internal Grant Agency. This policy also sets the conditions for using the financial resources, criteria for evaluating the projects and staffing of the commission. IGA operates based on regular calls (issued in December) with funding decisions issued in January following year.
