These can now apply for grants to research infrastructure 2023

It is now clear which new areas and existing research infrastructures are included in the call for grants to research infrastructure of national interest 2023. The call is open during the period 30 November 2022–14 February 2023.

The areas and research infrastructures included in the call for grants to research infrastructure of national interest are:

  • the areas graded as A1 in the needs inventory 2021–2022
  • existing research infrastructures where the grant period ends in 2023 or 2024.

It will also be possible to apply for additional grants to fund increased Swedish engagement in international research infrastructures where Sweden is already a member, for example in the form of in-kind grants.

The overall budget amount for the call will be determined only at the start of next year. Current cost increases for research infrastructures are expected to put pressure on the budget.

New areas

  • Large-scale Infrastructure for Experimental ICT System Research
  • Infrastructure for laboratory archaeology
  • Swedish Participation in Generations and Gender Programme
  • Infrastructure for Electoral Democracy in Europe
  • National infrastructure for research vessel
  • Infrastructure for astroparticle physics with neutrinos*
  • Infrastructure for solar physics – European Solar Telescope*

Existing research infrastructure

  • Biobank Sweden
  • DESIREE – Double ElectroStatic Ion Ring ExpEriment
  • European Extremely Large Telescope instrumentation
  • Fusion research and EUROfusion
  • IceCube Neutrino Observatory*
  • Infrastructure for solar physics – European Solar Telescope*
  • Integrated Carbon Observation System
  • Ion Technology Centre
  • Myfab national research infrastructure for nano and micro fabrication
  • National Genomics Infrastructure
  • National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden and Swedish node for Elixir
  • National infrastructure for microscopy within life sciences
  • Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration
  • Infrastructure for Democracy, Environment, Migration, Social policy, Conflict, and Representation
  • Swedish biodiversity data infrastructure
  • Swedish node for Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure
  • Swedish National Infrastructure for Biological Mass Spectrometry

* A joint application is expected from those that are listed as both a new area and an existing infrastructure.

  1. Large-scale computational resources

    Are you doing research in computational science? Then you can apply for access to Swedish and European computational resources at NAISS and EuroHPC. Here you can read more about how to do this.

  2. ArchLab

    ArchLab is a distributed research infrastructure that coordinates a number of laboratories that use natural science methods to tackle archaeological questions. The infrastructure is under construction and is coordinated from Umeå University.

  3. Research infrastructures will be able to get funding for 10 years

    The Government is making a change to the Swedish Research Council’s instructions, which means that we can fund research infrastructure of national interest for a longer period, extending from the current 6 years to 10 years. The purpose is to improve...
