Since 2017, the Swedish Research Council has been tasked by the Government to operate a ten-year national research programme in migration and integration. In addition to strengthening research in this field, the programme shall also contribute to research being disseminated and made accessible outside the research community.

The Swedish Research Council is now issuing a call for grants for communication by researchers about migration and integration within the framework for the national research programme. According to the Government mandate, the communication projects shall contribute to increased impact of the research results in society, in the form of development, knowledge accumulation and knowledge-based policies and administration, for example. The communication activities shall include target groups outside the research community. Innovative strategies for communication are particularly encouraged. The activities shall be of a scope that would not have been possible to realise without extra resources, and shall differ from the communication usually included in projects funded by the Swedish Research Council.

The call is open to researchers in all scientific disciplines studying issues related to migration, migrants and integration.

Please contact the communications department at your administrating organisation for support in how to design your project.

Other requirements for applicants:

  • The applicant’s previous research grant shall have dealt with issues relating to migration or integration, and the communication project shall be linked to the previous project.
  • The project shall include collaboration with a curator, producer, creator, collaboration coordinator, collaboration lecturer, artist, project coordinator, designer, communicator or other relevant professional expertise.
