Admission requirements

Admission to the PhD courses normally requires a relevant Master’s degree such as a Master of Science in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, in Innovation Management, in Community Work, in Business, or in Climate Management. However, candidates from other Master Programmes in e.g. Engineering, Social Sciences, Humanities, or in Health and Care Sciences, may also qualify for admission into the programme.

The applicant must document completion of their master’s studies with strong results. A grade of B or higher (according to the Norwegian grading scale) on the master’s dissertation, and an average higher than C on associated coursework, are normally required for admission into the programme.

Applicants for the course PHDINN908 Innovation and Sustainable Transition must include a motivation letter at maximum one page.


When the number of applicants for PhD courses exceeds the admission capacity, the following criteria for ranking applicants will be used:

  1. PhD candidates in the RESINNREG programme

  3. PhD candidates from other collaborative projects
  4. PhD candidates participating in other PhD programs at HVL
