New features in Swedish Research Council calls 2021

At present, 35 calls are planned for 2021. Many of them are recurrent. Among those is the international postdoc grant, but we have made some changes to it for next year. Some calls are being issued for the first time. One of those is a call for multisectoral graduate schools in development research, another is for a grant for investment in existing research infrastructure.

Below is a list of calls that have been changed, and calls that we are issuing for the first time. We have also included calls that are not issued every year. Please note that not all the detailed terms and conditions for the calls have been decided yet. Full instructions in the form of call texts will be published when the call in question opens.

Further calls may be added, for example if we receive a Government mandate.

Dates for upcoming calls are available hereexternal link
