International Research Collaboration – Swedish Research Links

The Swedish Research Links programme aims at supporting the development of long-term research collaboration between Swedish researchers and researchers from low or lower-middle income countries. This grant in the field of development research is financed through the government development aid funds. The funded research must be of relevance to poverty reduction and sustainable development in the countries concerned. Support is given to top quality scientific research in all scientific disciplines.

Terms and conditions

In case the Swedish researcher, or the international collaboration partners, do not fulfil the eligibility criteria for the grant in question, or if the application guidelines have not been adhered to, the Research Council may reject and thereby not consider the application.

The call objectives

The call has two main objectives.

  • The grant aims to strengthen the knowledge exchange and collaboration between researchers in Sweden and in low or lower-middle income countries. The objective is to promote long-term collaboration in research of high scientific quality.  The collaboration shall be based on the principle of mutual benefit, equality and commonly set objectives.
  • The grant funding shall strengthen research of relevance to the overall objective of Swedish international aid, namely to create improved living conditions for people living in repression and poverty. The call for applications will thus contribute to the overarching objective of the Swedish Policy for Global Development - equitable and sustainable global development.

Relevant development research is here defined as research aiming to identify problems that primarily affect the most vulnerable men, women, boys and girls in low or lower-middle income countries, and to find solutions to these problems. The research should strive to identify new factors that that may promote sustainable and equitable development in low or lower-middle income countries, and touch upon global problems with significant impact on these countries. The research may target knowledge that is either immediately or potentially useful in fulfilling the objectives of this call. 

The call is open to researchers in all scientific disciplines and covers both basic and applied research. The Swedish Research Council encourages collaborative research, with a multi- and interdisciplinary approach, as well as collaboration in new and emerging research areas.

Who may apply?

The project grant is open to individual researchers, who are linked to a Swedish administrating organisation and who will serve as project leaders and scientific supervisors in the project. The application must include at least one but not more than three other co-responsible researchers/international project leaders, who shall be involved in the planning of the collaborative research, the elaboration of the application and the collaborative research project, as described in the application. The international project leader(s) must be linked to a university or research institution in a low or lower-middle income countries. The application may include up to three partner countries. Each country must be represented by a co-responsible researcher/international project leader, who is active in the country concerned. Other researchers involved in the project will be regarded as participating researchers.

The Swedish project leader must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree. The international project leader must have equivalent qualifications. 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 defense of the doctoral thesis and the approved doctoral thesis).   

Participants

By participants, 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 project. Participating researchers do not have to be employed by a Swedish university or a Swedish HEI. International project leaders must be linked to a research institution in an approved partner country. This condition does however not apply to other participants. Participating researchers will have to present the required application data on their own behalf.

Grant period 

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

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 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.

Minor project-related costs (such as minor equipment and consumables) may also be included up to a maximum amount of 100,000 SEK per year. The grant funding may not be used for scholarships or salaries. It may however be used to cover additional subsistence expenses incurred by the international project leader (or by his/her co-workers) during visits to the Swedish project leader. The maximum grant amount for international collaborative research is 400,000 SEK per year, including indirect costs. Indirect costs refer to costs incurred by the Swedish administrating organisation.

Number of grants and applications 

You may submit more than one application under the Swedish Research Links call for applications, provided that the applications involve different collaboration partners and countries. It is possible to apply for the Swedish Research Links grant and the other grants offered by the Swedish Research Council in parallel.

The following applies to project leaders in projects that currently benefit from an ongoing international collaborative research grant under Swedish Research Links:

  • You may include the same international collaboration partners in your application under this call, provided that the current grant period expires in 2015 (i.e., the current grant disbursement period will end in 2015). The application must however be based on a different project idea. You may not apply for a grant involving the same collaboration partner(s) if if the applied grant period overlaps with the grant period of the ongoing project.
  • You may apply for this grant together with a new cooperation partner in a different country.

If you have previously been awarded grant funding for an international collaborative research project, and this project is now completed (the disbursement period has ended), you may apply for another grant including the same collaboration partners, provided that the application is based on a different project idea.

If you apply for the grant together with a former collaboration partner, you will have to provide an outline of the previous research collaboration and the project idea. This also applies to cases where the previous collaboration did not receive funding under the Swedish Research Links programme.

A final scientific report must have been submitted to the Swedish Research Council, for any form of expired grant funding received under Swedish Research Links, in order for you to be eligible for a new grant.

Grant administration

The grant will be administered by a Swedish university, a Swedish higher education institution (HEI), or another public organisation in Sweden that fulfils the Swedish Research Council’s requirements for administrating organisations. In case you organisation is not already an approved administrating organisation, it should apply for this status by opening an organisation accountexternal link, opens in new window in Prisma. This account will be subject to validation by the Swedish Research Council.

For all grants funded by the Swedish Research Council, a final financial report must be presented within the prescribed deadlines. If you 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 concerned.

Employment status and terms of employment

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).

Anti-corruption measures

The administrating organisation and the research grant holders shall cooperate to prevent and combat corruption within the framework of the project. The administrating organisation must immediately inform the Swedish Research Council of any unlawful or corrupt practices, or other forms of misuse of the project funding, in the envisaged project.

Instructions for applying 

The Swedish project leader shall submit the application electronically through Prismaexternal link, opens in new window, 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 international collaborative research under Swedish Research Links must include at least one international project leader, who shall be involved in the planning of the collaborative research and the elaboration of the application. The instructions given below thus also target such application participants.

In order to be able to create a Prisma account, you need an ORCID identifier. ORCID is a digital researcher identification solution that is linked to an international researcher directory. ORCID also forms a mandatory part of the Prisma system. If you have not already created a researcher ID, you can do so on the ORCID websiteexternal link, opens in new window (a link is also provided in Prisma). Please note that publications listed in ORCID are not linked to the Prisma system.

Language

The scientific assessment of the applications is partly done by foreign peer reviewers. In order to guarantee a well-functioning procedure and a level playing field in the review process, we ask you to write the application in English.

Application text fields

You create an application in the Prisma system by filling out the text fields, using drop-down menus, retrieving information from your personal account, and by enclosing the required appendices.

Some text fields may be formatted, making it possible for you to change the font and size and insert certain tables, formulas and symbols. If you have written the text in advance using Microsoft Word, you can also use a function that enables you to insert the text and keep the initial formatting. Pictures may however not be inserted into the text fields.

All free text fields have limitations as to the number of characters. The application system will object if you try to register an application containing too many characters in a text field, or if mandatory information is missing or needs to be revised.

Signing the application

Both the Swedish project leader, and the official representative of the administrating organisation, must sign the application electronically in the Prisma system. More information is given under the tab "Registering the application".

Remember to double-check your application before submitting it!

Participants

Under this tab, the Swedish project leader can invite the international project leader(s) and other participating researchers (where applicable) to join the application. By participating researcher we refer to a person, who will have a key role in the realization of the proposed research. Furthermore, the international project leaders will share the responsibility for the collaborative research project with the Swedish project leader. A maximum of six researchers may be invited. At least one, but no more than three of these researchers must be international project leaders. That is to say one per partner country listed under the heading "Descriptive data". You distinguish them from other participating researchers by giving them the status of international project leaders in the table provided in the application form. The Swedish project leader must give the international project leaders full editing rights.  

The Swedish project leader may also invite one or several participating administrators. A participating administrator is a person, who does not take part in the collaborative research project itself but can help you enter and edit information in the application form.

The Swedish project leader may invite participants, who do not yet hold a Prisma account. Each one of them must however open a personal account to be able to contribute to the application.

Please note that the Swedish project leader will only be able to register the application once all invited participants have answered the invitation. Invitations must be answered or removed before the application can be submitted.

CV

Fill out the CV by selecting the requested information or data from the personal Prisma accounts. For this application, only the information on the postgraduate studies and current positions of the applicant, the international project leader and the participating researchers (where applicable) should be selected. If the international project leader does not have a doctoral degree, this person's equivalent qualifications must be clearly demonstrated in his/her CV (to be attached in a PDF format).

You will only be able to select and edit your own personal data. The international project leaders, and other participating researchers (where applicable), will have to retrieve the information on their postgraduate studies and current positions from their respective Prisma accounts. In the capacity of Swedish project leader, you will be able to remind them to provide this information.

Please note that for this application, the full CV should be attached as an appendix in PDF format (more information can be found under the heading "CV and publications" above).
