Grants allocated in our General call for applications 2013

This year´s General call for applications is now completed. A total amount of approximately 4.3 billion Swedish kronor (SEK) is allocated for the coming five-year period.

4.3 billion to research and research infrastructures

The funding is being allocated as follows:

  • SEK 1.5 billion in research infrastructure (a large part goes to the continued operation and development of Max IV)
  • SEK 966 million in medicine and health
  • SEK 937 million natural and engineering sciences
  • SEK 436 million in humanities and social sciences
  • SEK 219 million in educational science
  • SEK 31 million in artistic research and development

The Swedish Research Council allocates additional funds during the year in addition to the calls included in the General Call for Applications, for example through other calls and membership in various international infrastructures.

14 percent of all applications were approved

In total, 5 338 applications were received. Of these 742 were approved. This gives an approval rate of 14 percent. The majority of the applications is for Project Research Grants.

Of all applications (excluding infrastructure applications), 1 883 came from women, of which 237 were granted. The corresponding figures for men were 3 314 applications and 478 granted. Grant rate for women is 13 percent and 14 percent for men.

The reason why infrastructure applications is not included in the above figures, is that the grants do not go to individual researchers but to tools accessible to all researchers afterscientific assessment.

Higher education institutions

The table below shows the amount awarded per higher education institutions for the ten higher education institutions that received most research funding (funds for infrastructure excluded) during the next 5-year period.
