These may apply for grants for research infrastructure 2019
A decision has now been made on the new areas and the existing research infrastructures that are covered by the call for grants to research infrastructure 2019. 14 new areas and 14 existing research infrastructures are covered, and may therefore apply for grants in the call, which opens on 16 January 2019.
All areas graded as A1 in the needs inventory 2017, and all existing research infrastructures where the grant period ends in 2019 or 2020 are covered by the call. This has been decided by the Council for Research Infrastructures.
In total, 28 areas and existing research infrastructures may apply for grants in the call, which opens 16 January 2019. The Result of the needs inventory, an appendix to the Swedish Research Council’s Guide to Infrastructure, has a detailed description of each new subject area and existing research infrastructure.
Furthermore, additional grants may also be applied for to fund increased Swedish engagement in international infrastructures where Sweden is already a member, for example in the form of in-kind grants.

We have made some changes in this application round compared to previous years.
- It is no longer a requirement that a consortium is behind the application (even if this is desirable in most cases).
- All applicants will be called for an interview.
- Research infrastructures with ongoing grants shall describe their activities during the previous grant period in an appendix to the application.
