N.A.R.P Norwegian Artistic Research Programme for the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills.

Activity: Other


The Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills (former Diku) kindly invited Professor Karen Fleming to review one or more applications to the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme (NARP) as an international peer in 2021.

The programme has national responsibility for promoting and stimulating artistic research in Norway and supports projects which contributes to promote reflection and insight based on artistic practice. The aims and range of operation can be found in the guidelines.

Applications are reviewed and assessed by three individual referees. The individual expert assessments and their names will only be made available to the applying institution and the project participants.

The assessment criteria are listed in the guidelines. An online form is made for these reviews. The review will be based partly on a numeric assessment of the quality of the application’s different elements and partly on a written summarize on each of the main parts of the assessment criteria. Without any ranking of the applications, the assessment must conclude with either clearly worthy of support, worthy of support or not worthy of support.

Applications are submitted electronically through  the directorates’ application and reporting system, Espresso. The review form is also available through this system.

Your assessment must be finished by 15 December 2021 at the latest. The Norwegian Artistic Research Programme intends to make the decision on funding by 15 February 2022.
