Nätverksbidrag Kina-Sverige

(Utlysningstexten är bara tillgänglig på engelska)

The aim of the grant is to support the development of long-term research collaboration between Swedish and Chinese researchers.

The Sino-Swedish Joint Research Programme was initiated in order to promote collaboration between researchers from Sweden and China as well as supporting research of the highest scientific quality. The programme has a long term perspective where calls for network grants will be followed by calls for project grants in the up-coming years. The grants are financed by the Swedish Research Council in Sweden and the National Natural Science foundation of China (NSFC) in China on the principle of reciprocity and parity. The Swedish Research Council and NSFC will take terms in administrating this programme and the 2015 call for network grants is administered by the Swedish Research Council.

The Swedish Research Councilsupports basic research of highest quality in all scientific disciplines and promotes research cooperation and exchanges of experiences.

Terms and conditions

In case the Swedish researcher, or the Chinese collaboration partner does not fulfil the eligibility criteria for the grant in question, or if the application guidelines have not been adhered to, the Swedish Research Council may reject and thereby not consider the application. The Chinese project leader and administrating organisation must submit a corresponding proposal to NSFC for check of eligibility, see www.nsfc.gov.cnlänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster for more information.

Please note that “Swedish” and “Chinese” in this call refer to the researcher’s country of affiliation and not nationality.

Network grant outlines

The Sino-Swedish research collaboration is enabled by a bilateral agreement between the Swedish and Chinese governments. Under this agreement the Swedish Research Council and NSFC in China jointly funds grants for collaborative research.  The Swedish Research Council and NSFC will take terms in administrating this programme and the 2015 call for network grants is administered by the Swedish Research Council.

The Swedish Research Council funds the Swedish part of granted applications while NSFC funds the Chinese part of the collaborations.

Call objectives and line of research

The main objective of the grant is support new or existing Sino-Swedish researcher networks that in the longer perspective may develop into long-term collaborations.  The collaboration shall be based on the principle of mutual benefit, equality and commonly set objectives. The call for network grants is open for applications concerning research within these two areas:

  • Disease due to environmental impact or life style factors. The individual’s health is a result of several influencing factors acting either indirectly or directly. The immediate milieu, e.g. working conditions or living conditions may expose the individual to factors that can affect the health. Also more global effects may in the long run affect health, e.g. climate change leading to an increase in exposure to infectious diseases. More direct effects are seen as a result of negative life style factors, such as inadequate physical activity, over-eating, smoking or drug abuse. 
  • Treatment of chronic disease. Improved health care will result in increasing numbers of patients suffering from chronic diseases. As these patients will require life-long disease management entirely new treatment strategies need to be developed. Efficient drugs with minimal side-effects and new technologies allowing treatment at home will be required as well as training programs maintaining physical and mental functions.

Who may apply?

The call for network grant is open to individual researchers, who are linked to a Swedish administrating organization and who will serve as project leaders and scientific supervisors in the research part funded by the Swedish Research Council. The application must include a collaboration with researchers and/or research groups active at a university or research institute in China. This part of the collaboration is represented by a Chinese project leader, also called international project leader, who must be based at a Chinese university or other research institution. In other words, the application must include one project leader in Sweden and one project leader in China. Other researchers involved in the proposal will be regarded as participating researchers.

The Swedish project leader must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree. The doctoral degree must have been awarded before the deadline of this call. The date of issue will be considered to be the point in time when all the requirements of the degree were fulfilled (for example mandatory courses, the oral public defence of the doctoral thesis and the approved doctoral thesis). The Chinese project leader must conform to the NSFC regulations (see www.nsfc.gov.cn)länk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster.

Participating researchers

Participating researchers, we refer to the Swedish or foreign researchers, who hold a doctoral degree or equivalent, and who will play a key role in the proposed collaboration and in the implementation of the research activities. Participating researchers do not have to be employed by a Swedish or Chinese university or other Higher Education Institution (HEI). Participating researchers will have to present the required application data on their own behalf. ).   

Participants in the Chinese part of the collaboration must conform to the NSFC regulations (see www.nsfc.gov.cnlänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster).

Grant period

The project grant is awarded for a period of 2 years, starting from January 2016. The grant disbursements will start in January 2016 at the earliest.

Costs and grant funding

The grant covers the Swedish and Chinese budgets separately. The part of the grant covering the Swedish budget costs will be financed by the Swedish Research Council and the part of the grant covering the Chinese budget costs will be financed by the NSFC.

The maximum amount for the Swedish part is 350,000 SEK per year, including indirect costs (costs incurred by the Swedish administrating organisation). The maximum amount for the Chinese part is 125,000 RMB per year. Applying for a higher amount will result in the rejection of the application.

The grant may be used to cover costs incurred in connection with international networking and research cooperation activities, such as:

  • Research visits within the research collaboration framework.
  • Joint seminars or workshops aimed to exchange knowledge and establish a common research agenda. 
  • Joint publications and other forms of joint information dissemination.
  • Preparation/planning of research applications to other research funding bodies.

The Swedish part may also include minor project-related costs (such as minor equipment and consumables) up to a maximum amount of 75,000 SEK per year, including indirect costs. The grant funding may not be used for scholarships or salaries.

Number of grants and applications

What grants may I apply for simultaneously?

You may only submit one application under this call for network grants for research collaboration between China and Sweden. There are no other restrictions for applying for the network grant.

What grants may I apply for if I have an ongoing research grant?

There are no restrictions for applying for the network grant if you are the project leader of an ongoing grant from the Swedish Research Council.

Grant administration

The grant is administered both by a Swedish HEI or another public organisation in Sweden which fulfils the Swedish Research Council’s requirements for administrating organisations – and by a corresponding institution in China. The Swedish and Chinese project leader will receive funding from their respective national funding agencies and therefore also separately administer the funds. In case the Swedish project leader’s organisation is not already an approved administrating organisation, it should apply for this status by opening an organisation accountlänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster with the Swedish Research Council in the Prisma system. The account will be subject to validation.

For all grants funded by the Swedish Research Council, a final financial report must be presented within the prescribed deadlines. If you have been awarded funding before, we will check that all financial reports for previously awarded grants have been submitted. Should a financial report be missing, the current application will be rejected. For questions as to whether all financial statements have been submitted, please turn to the administrating organisation.

Employment status and terms of employment

The Swedish project leader shall be employed by the administrating organisation when the grant period begins, unless the Swedish Research Council, the administrating organisation or another employer agree otherwise. The employment with the administration organisation must at least equal 20 percent of a full-time employment. You do not have to be employed by the administrating organisation when the application is submitted. The administrating organisation will acknowledge this commitment by signing the application in the Prisma system (cf. below).

Instructions for applying 

The Swedish project leader shall submit the application electronically through Prisma länk till annan webbplats, the new application system of the Swedish Research Council. An application prerequisite is that the applicant's HEI has been approved as an administrating organisation and created an organisation account in Prisma.

Applications for research collaboration network grants China-Sweden must include a Chinese project leader who must be based at a Chinese university or other research institution. The Chinese project leader shall be involved in the planning of the collaboration and the elaboration of the application.

Please note that the Swedish principle of public access to official records applies to all research applications submitted to the Swedish Research Council.

Please note that the Chinese project leader needs to send the proposal to NSFC according to NSFC instructions no later than August 28.
