The Swedish Research Council is funding Post Doctoral European Fellowship reserve candidates

It is now possible for researchers who applied for the grant Post Doctoral European Fellowship, with a Swedish administrating organisation, under the EU’s call in 2022 and were the highest ranking reserves to receive funding from the Swedish Research Council.

Previously, Vinnova issued calls for researchers who ranked highly on the reserve list for Post Doctoral European Fellowship, but since the Swedish Research Council took over the national contact point (NCP) responsibility for the EU’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme, we are now managing this via the call for Seal of Excellence.

It is the organisation that will be hosting the project – the administrating organisation – that shall apply for the grant. The Swedish Research Council will contact the organisations in question.

The administrating organisation must be approved by the Swedish Research Council. In addition to our general grant terms and conditions, specific EU terms and conditions also apply. The grant must only be used to fund activities in Sweden, and the grant period is 12–24 months, depending on the grant period applied for in the original application to the EU.
