Apply for career support for research in basic virology

Three calls opening on 10 June focus on research into virus and disease conditions caused by viruses. The calls are aimed at researchers at the beginning of their careers. Next year we will issue a call for project grants.

The Swedish Research Council has decided to boost basic virus research with 100 million SEK over the years 2020–2024. The calls for international postdoc grant, starting grant and consolidation grant are aimed at researchers at the beginning of their careers. In 2021 the initiative will be complemented with a call for project grants.

“To increase knowledge about viruses in order to better equip us against future pandemics, we are making this long-term investment. The aim is to build up a larger knowledge base and safeguard the competence provision of tomorrow’s research leaders,” says Jan-Ingvar Jönsson, Secretary General for Medicine and Health at the Swedish Research Council.

The calls are open 10 June – 25 August.
