Funding and promoting research

One of the Swedish Research Council's main mandates is to fund and promote research. The major part of the research we fund is basic research.

We fund research in all scientific fields

Much of our research funding goes to projects where researchers themselves have formulated the research questions and developed methods for answering these.

Some of our calls for research projects include a specific thematic focus. Other grants aim to facilitate career development for researchers and increase their mobility within the research community.

Information about all research projects can be found in Swecris

We are responsible for six national research programs

The national research programmes are ten-year initiatives, aimed at coordinating research within a particular area. Each programme gathers together actors with complementary knowledge, competences and mandates, to work together to improve our ability to manage the societal challenges indicated by the Government.

The programmes support multi-disciplinary research, and shall function as a link to international research collaborations. They are also intended to contribute to increasing the connection to research in higher education.
