Oslo Science Park is now launching the "Forskningsparken Community Fund", an initiative made to encourage collaborative and community-driven activities. This fund is open to all members looking to meet over a shared interest or passion!

The concept is simple: if you and fellow community members have identified a shared interest, you can submit an idea proposal to the fund. This could be anything from educational programs and social happenings or even hobbies. The fund is here to support a diverse range of projects that contribute to a vibrant community.

Key Features:

  • Inclusivity: Open to all community members, regardless of age, background, or experience.

  • Collaboration: Encourages collaboration among community members who share common interests.

  • Transparency: The fund operates with transparency and accountability, providing regular updates on activities and finances.

How does it work?

1: Identify an Interest: Gather like-minded individuals who share a common interest or have a project idea that could benefit the community. Join our Slack “Forskningsparken” to start the conversation and invite others.

2. Submit a Proposal: Prepare a project proposal outlining your goals, budget, and expected impact.

3: Approval: We will evaluate and approve projects based on community impact, and alignment with the fund's mission.

4: Get Started: Once approved, the fund will provide the financial support and resources needed!
