Norway Exchange Program

Norway is one of the most digitalized countries in the world and AI research is a top priority. This exchange is an opportunity to get to know the countries’ thriving data science community. HIDA is proud to collaborate with NORA – the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium – for this exchange.

Live and conduct research on a self-organized project in Norway for three months. HIDA supports your stay with a travel grant of up to 2,000 Euros per month. You will be part of a Norwegian research team, and will be supervised by a senior data scientist to learn new methods and skills. Network with one of the most active Data Science communities in Europe and learn new approaches and methods for your own research.

This exchange is for PhDs and postdocs with a working contract at one of the Helmholtz Centers at the time of the exchange. Helmholtz-associated PhDs and postdocs, please contact us before applying.
