CoSTClim – NORPART Call for Applications for PhD Student Mobility to Norway, 2022


Makerere University in collaboration with Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) and Regional Universities Forum (for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) are implementing a five year CoSTClim project (Collaborative Action for Strengthening Training Capacities in Climate Risk and Natural Resource management). The main goal of the project is to improve the quality of training, education and research at the partner institutions with a dedicated focus on climate risk, disaster risk management and natural resource management. CoSTClim builds on a range of other capacity development projects funded by the Norwegian Government at the partner institutions, but is more focused on education.

One of the components of CoSTClim is staff and student exchanges through mobilities in both directions i.e. (a) Uganda to Norway and (b) Norway to Uganda. The student mobilities will involve both Masters and PhD registered and progressing well at the partners institutions, pursuing programmes or research which strongly rhymes with the project theme.

At this time, we are inviting applicants from Makerere University for PhD student mobility to Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) for the year 2022. The project will provide funds to successful applicants for a 3 month stay at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. It is envisaged that the successful students will leverage the time at NTNU to advance their progress on the PhD programme they are enrolled in. Clear outputs, benefits and outcomes from the mobility should be well articulated by the applicants. Potential applicants are encouraged to familiarize with resources including staff and research focal areas at the collaborating department at NTNU ( to ensure that what they propose to do is in tandem. The main supervision responsibility for the PhD students will remain with the supervisors at Makerere, but NTNU scholars will provide some complementary supervision, mentorship or assistance towards a publication. The PhD students will also get the opportunity to participate in other academic activities at NTNU.
