Application procedure

Grant applications within JPND are made in a two-stage procedure, where a simplified version of the application, known as an outline application, is first submitted. Applicants whose outline applications are approved shall then submit a full application. Both the outline application and full application are peer reviewed, and ranked in competition with other applications.

The application to the JPND consortium call shall be submitted by the research consortium’s international coordinator to JPND’s application system. External link, opens in new window.

As a project leader representing a Swedish partner in the research consortium, you must submit the corresponding applications (outline application and full application respectively) via the Swedish Research Council’s application system Prisma in parallel with the international coordinator submitting the consortium application. Please note that for practical reasons, the parallel call in Prisma for you as the Swedish partner will close a few days later than in JPND’s application system. This applies for both the outline application and the full application.

To the application form in Prisma External link, opens in new window.

More information on what to do in practical terms is available in our “Guide for applicants”.

JPND will make a decision on the outline applications in May 2019. The decision will be notified to the coordinator of the consortium with a statement in the form of a written comment.

The content of your outline application will be transferred automatically to the full application if your consortium is invited to submit a full application to JPND. You will thereafter have to update the content of your application to the Swedish Research Council, so that it corresponds to the full consortium application submitted to JPND, and also complete a section on ethical considerations. More information on this is available in the section “What must the application contain?” below.

The applications that are approved and invited to submit a full application shall do so in Prisma no later than 27 June 2019. The exact date will be notified to the Swedish partners in the consortiums invited to submit a full application to JPND.

JPND decides which consortiums will be recommended for funding by the respective national research funding body. The decision will be notified to the coordinator of the consortium with a statement in the form of a written comment. The Swedish Research Council makes the grant decisions for Swedish participants. Shortly after the grant decision has been made, a notice of the grant awards will be published on the Swedish Research Council’s website. You will thereafter find a notice of the decision on your application in your personal account in Prisma, under the tab “Applications and grants”.

You are responsible for ensuring the application is complete and corresponds to the application in JPND’s application system, that is to say the application form is correctly filled in, the correct appendices are attached and the information requested has been provided according to the instructions. Please only submit material specifically requested. We do not accept any additional information after the deadline, except when specifically requested.
