Please note: You must register for an account with SIOS to submit an application. New accounts are approved by SIOS-KC during office hours (8:00-16:00 CEST Mon-Fri).


Important! Due to Covid-19 many of the access projects that were funded in the 2019 call have been postponed until 2021. This may cause reduced capacity to accept new projects in the 2020 call. 

Please also note that SIOS does not support travel to Svalbard from countries that are under quarantine regulations. This applies at the time of travel. Due to the unpredictable nature of the travel restrictions we recommend submitting an application anyway, but please be aware that any offer of funding will be conditional on there not being any quarantine imposed on travel from your country at the time that you plan to travel. Please visit the Norwegian Institute for Public Health website for the most up to date information.
