Please note that only notice in Prisma guarantees that a grant has been approved.
What happens after the grant decision?
A few days after the grant decision has been published, you can see the decision and final statement for your application on your account in Prisma. A message is shown on Prisma’s starting page under the heading “Tasks”.
How to find the final statement:
- Go to tab “Applications and grants”
- Select “Applications” in the left-hand menu
- Click on "Details"
Note! Your research colleagues may receive their decisions and final statements before you receive yours, or vice versa.
Some project applications receive final statements that only contain a summary grade. These applications were given the lowest grades by the review panel. They were screened out early, and therefore not discussed in as much detail by the panel.
If your application has been approved, the document “Approval of terms and conditions” will be published on your account in Prisma. It describes the terms and conditions for the grant. You and the head of department (or corresponding) must sign the “Approval of terms and conditions” as soon as possible – but no later than after 90 days.
Note! It may take up to three weeks after the grant decision before the document is published in Prisma.
Yes, it is up to you and your employer to agree on when the project shall start, as long as this does not affect the grant’s availability period – the period during which you are allowed to use the grant.
For research project grants, this usually means that you must start the project within 1 year.
