New calls

Below is a list of calls that we are issuing for the first time. Not all the detailed terms and conditions for the calls have been decided yet. Full instructions will be provided in the call texts to be published when the call in question opens.

International collaboration

Every year, we issue calls in collaboration with other countries. In 2022, for example, we will be funding grants for research collaboration between researchers in Korea and Sweden, and between China and Sweden. The formats for these calls may vary a bit, as they are sometimes administered by one of our collaborating partners.

We also issue calls for research funding within the framework of the EU’s partnership programmes JPIAMR, and also the collaboration within Belmont Forum

Requirements for approval as an administrating organisation

An organisation needs to be approved as an administrating organisation in order to administer and pay out research grants from us. Approved administrating organisations are usually Swedish higher education institutions (HEIs), but we may also approve other organisations, provided they, as part of their mandates, conduct such research or research-supporting activities as the Swedish Research Council is mandated to fund, and also fulfil certain criteria. This category includes organisations, such as Swedish governmental agencies that are not higher education institutions but have research mandates, and certain research institutes.
