Specific terms and conditions for grants

Besides the general terms and conditions for grants, there are also specific terms and conditions for most of our calls. The specific terms and conditions for a call are stated in the call text. The terms and conditions are then adopted when the grant is awarded.

The specific terms and conditions for a grant could include how the funds may be used (the types of costs that are covered), specific requirements on your level of employment, the size of the standard amount and requirements on interim reports to the Swedish Research Council. The specific terms and conditions vary in scope, depending on the type of grant. The scope of the specific terms and conditions is largest for grants to research infrastructure.

If a specific term or condition conflicts with our general research terms, the specific term or condition will take precedence.
