Eligibility criteria for grant applications

You must fulfil the requirements set out below to be eligible to apply for the grant. We will carry out checks to ensure that ineligible applications are rejected from further processing.

Focus

The aim of the call for Research Network Grants - Swedish Research Links is to support the development of long-term research collaboration of high scientific quality and to strengthen the exchange of knowledge between Swedish researchers and researchers in low and lower-middle income countries (see information under Collaboration countries). The research plan shall be developed jointly, be based on mutual benefit and include collaboration of equal value. The grant shall also strengthen research of particular relevance to poverty reduction and sustainable development in low and lower-middle income countries. This means that the research should be relevant to the overall objectives of Swedish international aid; namely to create the prerequisites for improved living conditions for people living in poverty and repression, and thereby contribute to equitable and sustainable global development.

The research may aim at both immediate benefits and at generating knowledge that may contribute to the long-term goals of Swedish development collaboration. The call is open for researchers in all scientific fields and comprises both basic and applied research. The Swedish Research Council encourages research collaboration with a multi- and interdisciplinary approach, as well as collaboration in new and emerging fields of research.

Applicant

The Research Network Grant is open to individual researchers. You will be the project leader and scientific supervisor of the collaboration project and you must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree, awarded no later than 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 grant will be administered by a Swedish Higher Education Institution (HEI), or another public organisation in Sweden that fulfils the Swedish Research Council’s requirements for administrating organisationsopens in new window. Please note that you will not be able to apply unless your organisation is an approved administrating organisation

If you are awarded funding, you must be employed by the administrating organisation when the grant period begins unless the Swedish Research Council, the administrating organisation or another employer (where applicable) agree otherwise. The employment must equal at least 20 per cent of a full-time equivalent. You do not have to be employed by the administrating organisation when the application is submitted.

Number of applications and previous grants

The eligibility criteria under this section only apply for the applicant and project leader, not for participating researchers.

What grants may I apply for simultaneously from the Swedish Research Council?

You may submit more than one application for Swedish Research Links provided the applications relate to different collaboration partners and countries.

Other restrictions in regard to grants you are eligible to apply for in parallel in the same year are shown in the table below.

Table: Grants that can be applied for in parallelPDF

What eligibility criteria apply to ongoing research grants from the Swedish Research Council?

There are certain restrictions if you are the project leader of a grant already awarded and ongoing with a grant period (disbursement period from the Swedish Research Council) overlapping the grant period of the current grant application. Please note that the period of availability, i.e. the period during which you may draw on the grant awarded, is generally longer than the grant period. You will find information on the rules that apply to your ongoing grant in the “Approval of terms” that you received from the Swedish Research Council.

If you already hold a position as project leader of an ongoing Swedish Research Links grant where the disbursement period overlaps the grant period of the grant to which this application relates (disbursements made during 2018 as well), you may apply for a new grant with a new collaboration partner in a different country. If you are or have previously been the project leader for a Swedish Research Links grant where the grant period ends in 2017 (disbursements up to and including 2017) or earlier, you may apply for a new grant either with the same collaboration partner, provided that the application concerns a different research idea, or with a new collaboration partner in another country. See the table below for further information on grants that are eligible for holders of ongoing grants.

Table: Grants eligible for applicants with ongoing grantsPDF

Note: If you have been the project leader for previous grants from the Swedish Research Council that have now ended, you will only be able to apply for a new grant if the final financial report for all previous grants were submitted within the stipulated time period. Please contact your administrating organisation if you are unsure whether all your final financial reports have been submitted. If you have been awarded previous projects within Swedish Research Links, a scientific report shall also be submitted for each project completed.

Participating researchers

Your application shall include at least one and up to three co-responsible researchers/international project leaders who must be involved in the planning of the research collaboration and drawing up the application, as well as in the research collaboration as described in the application. International project leaders must hold a doctoral degree or have the equivalent competence, and be affiliated to a university or research institution in a low or lower-middle income country. You may select up to three collaboration countries, and each country must then be represented by a co-responsible researcher/international project leader who is active in the country in question.

Besides the co-responsible researchers/international project leaders, other researchers affiliated to the project may be included as participating researchers, i.e. researchers with a doctoral degree whose scientific merits and competence will be crucial for the implementation of the proposed research activities. The participating researchers do not have to be employed by a Swedish HEI or – as opposed to the international project leaders –affiliated to a research institute in an approved collaboration country. A maximum of six researchers may be invited to participate in the application.

Participating researchers will themselves have to enter the required information into Prisma, and link it to the application. Any other collaboration partners and their roles shall be described in the research plan (see instructions under Research plan below).

Costs and grant funding

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

  • Research and/or work visits between the collaboration partners
  • Joint seminars or workshops aimed at exchanging knowledge and establishing a common research agenda
  • Joint publications and other forms of joint information dissemination
  • Preparation/planning of research applications to other research funding bodies.

Minor project-related costs (such as minor equipment and consumables) up to a maximum amount of 100 000 SEK per year may also be included. The grant funding may not be used for salaries. It may however be used to cover additional subsistence costs incurred by the Swedish project leader for the international project leaders (or their co-workers). Scholarships that are not intended as alternatives to salary or other forms of study financing for doctoral students may be included in these additional costs.

You may apply for a maximum of 400 000 SEK per year, including indirect costs. Indirect costs refer to costs incurred by the Swedish administrating organisation. Please note that the grant may not be used to cover indirect costs at international universities or HEIs.

Grant period

You may apply for a grant period of a minimum of one and a maximum of three years, starting from January 2018. The first payment will be made in January 2018 at the earliest.

How do I apply?

You apply electronically through Prisma external link, opens in new window, which is the application system used by the Swedish Research Council. You create an application in the Prisma system by filling in the text fields, retrieving information from your personal account, and attaching the required appendices.

The reason for this is that the publications function is still under development and has not yet been implemented in the Swedish Research Council’s calls. The publications list must therefore be attached as a PDF file (see instructions under Publications below).

Please remember to create your personal account well in advance. The applications that you register in Prisma will be linked to your personal account.

All other participants involved in the preparation of the application must also create an individual Prisma account, and agree to their participation. Once that has been done, they will be able to link their account data to the application.

Text

Some text fields are formattable, which means that in those fields you can change the font and size and insert certain tables, formulas and symbols. If you have written the text in advance using Microsoft Word, you will also be able to copy-paste the text and keep the initial formatting. Pictures can however not be inserted into the text fields.

All text fields have limitations as to the number of characters and this will be illustrated by means of a character counter. If you use too many characters you will not be able to register the application.

Attached documents and appendices

You need to attach an appendix designed according to the instructions provided to some of the fields. The appendix may only consist of one file and you can only attach documents in a PDF format. All attachments are limited as to file size and number of pages. You will not be able to attach an appendix that exceeds the stated maximum file size.
