Research project grant for research collaboration between China and Sweden

The aim of the grant is to support the development of long-term basic research collaboration between Swedish and Chinese researchers.

The Sino-Swedish Joint Research Programme was initiated in order to promote collaboration between researchers from Sweden and China as well as supporting research of the highest scientific quality. The programme has a long term perspective where calls for network grants in 2016 now are followed by calls for project grants. The grants are financed by the Swedish Research Council in Sweden and the National Natural Science foundation of China (NSFC) in China on the principal of reciprocity and parity.

The Swedish Research Council and NSFC will have joint administration of the call and make a joint decision by using a panel consisting of both Swedish and Chinese evaluators.
