- Max IV will receive a grant of just over 1.1 billion SEK over the period 2019–2022. The Swedish Research Council has also made an outline decision to support the plant with a grant of a corresponding amount for a further four years, i.e. up until 2027.
- 0.5 billion SEK will be allocated to the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) over the years 2018–2022.

(Please note that as no exact amounts have as yet been decided, the list above does not include any amounts.)
The call was based on the result of the needs inventory
Only the research infrastructures/areas listed in the call text "Grants to infrastructure of national interest" were able to apply for funding. The research infrastructures/areas listed were selected either on the basis of a needs inventory that was carried out during last year, or had an ongoing grant that was due to end in 2017 or 2018.
What happens next?
At the end of September, representatives of the host universities whose infrastructures have been awarded grants will be invited by email to a dialogue about the conditions associated with the grants. The dialogues will be held during autumn 2017. No later than December 2017, following completion of the dialogues, the special terms and conditions for the grants shall be signed.
Following completion of the dialogues, the decisions and statements will be available in the organisation account in Prisma. A message is shown in the Tasks module on Prisma’s starting page. Your statement can be found in the tab Applications and grants. Please select the page Applications in the left-hand menu. To read the statement, please go to the list in the middle section of the page and click on the arrow to the right of the Event log button.
Payment of the grant will start no sooner than January 2018, and it will be paid out monthly on condition that the special terms and conditions have been signed. The infrastructure’s host university will receive the grant, and shall then administer payments to the other contributing HEIs.
