The Swedish Museum of Natural History NRM was appointed a Major
Research Infrastructure by the European Commision (EC) which implies
that scientists conducting their research in European Community
member states, except Sweden, or associated states, can get funding for
short visits to NRM. Please read the following announcement, and visit
our homepages indicated below for more information. We hope that
many of you will see this as an opportunity to visit and utilise the
collections a/o other facilities at NRM!
FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR SHORT VISITS TO THE SWEDISH MUSEUM
OF NATURAL HISTORY (NATURHISTORISKA RIKSMUSEET, NRM)
The funds are made available through the European Commission's
programme for "Improving the Human Research Potential and the Socio-
economic Knowledge Base" (IHP). The grant is entitled "Access to
Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet - High Latitude" (High Lat). It enables us to
meet travel and accommodation costs for scientists wishing to use our
collections and/or other research facilities. The High Lat programme
began November 1st 2001 and will run until February 29th 2004.
Applications for financial support for a visit to NRM are herewith invited.
There are a number of terms and conditions associated with this
opportunity, as outlined below. If you are interested in applying for
support, or are uncertain about whether you are eligible, please visit our

(highlat at nrm.se).
1) To be eligible you must conduct your research in a EU Member State or
Associated State (http://www.nrm.se/highlat/conditions.html). Scientists

research infrastructures exist.
