In the last period of the Norway Grants (2004-2009) the Dermatology clinic at Semmelweis University received funding which allowed them to renovate large parts of the clinic, and also provide it with state of the art medical equipment. At the 2009 inauguration, the Norwegian embassy was represented by then Ambassador Siri Ellen Sletner. This time Ambassador Tove Skarstein was given the same opportunity to come see the fruits the project has borne. She was received by the Rector of the University, the Director of the Dermatology Clinic, and several members of the medical staff, who gave her a tour of the clinic.

The improvements, made possible by the Norway Grants, have made an important difference in the day to day life of the clinic. Moreover, with new and better research facilities the clinic can now host Ph.D.-students and its ability to tempt Hungarian doctors studying, or doing research, outside of Hungary back to the homeland has greatly improved.
