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 the tab Applications and grants
- Select Applications in the left-hand menu
- Click on the arrow to the right of the Event log button
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.
The first payment will normally be made during January. The grant is then paid out monthly, provided the Approval of terms and conditions have been signed.
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.
You can read more about how your application has been assessed in the call text under How your application is assessed. You can find a link to the call on the right-hand side of this page.
