New grant for junior researchers (MH and NT)A new type of grant is the Project Grant Junior Researchers. Applicants may apply in the areas of medicine and health (MH) and natural and engineering sciences (NT). This grant has been established to support those beginning a career in research. You are eligible to apply if you received your doctorate no more than 7 years ago, i.e. 1 January 2004 or later. If you are applying for a Project Grant Junior Researchers you may not apply concurrently for the regular Project Research Grant. Likewise, you may not hold an ongoing project research grant.

More flexibility in Project Research Grants Project Research Grants have become more flexible and cover all types of project-related costs, e.g. the applicant´s salary (previously excluded in MH).
Project Research Grants are also available in six special areas, a new area this year is pharmaceutical science:
Linking the Molecules of life (apply to HS, KFoU, MH, NT, U)
Globalisation of society (apply to HS, KFoU, MH, NT, U)
Psychiatric research (apply to MH)
Health care sciences (apply to MH)
Energy-oriented basic research (apply to NT)
Pharmaceutical science (apply to MH)
Applications not awarded grants in these special areas compete in the usual manner for Project Research Grants.
