Apply for project grant within research for a sustainable energy system

The call for project proposals within curiosity-driven research for a sustainable energy system is issued by the Swedish Energy Agency in collaboration with the Swedish Research Council. This year we are welcoming applications within humanities and social sciences research as well as within natural and engineering sciences. Deadline for applications is 26 February 2020. 

New scientific perspectives and more active researchers are needed within the energy area to achieve the energy and climate policy goals. The call for project grants within curiosity-driven research for a sustainable energy system therefore covers research both within natural and engineering sciences (NT) and within humanities and social sciences (HS).

The initiative covers 125 million SEK in total. In this call, the Swedish Energy Agency provides room for curiosity-driven research into energy with the potential to contribute in the long term to development of the energy system.

The call is divided up into two categories. You can read more and apply on the Swedish Energy Agency’s website:

Category A – HSexternal link
