Network grant for international collaboration Swedish Research Links

The purpose of the network grant Swedish Research Links is to establish a network around a specific research idea, aimed at a joint research project. The grant shall support the development of long-term joint research between Swedish researchers and researchers from low income countries and lower middle income countries.

In some cases, support can also be given to build up a network around an existing research project. Calls for proposals are issued within the area of development research, which is financed by the Swedish Government’s development aid funds. The research area shall be relevant to the goals for Sweden’s international development collaboration. Grants are available within all scientific areas.
