The area of development research supported by the Swedish Research Council encompasses Swedish research of particular relevance for poverty reduction and sustainable development in low income countries (Project Research Grant) and low income and lower middle income countries (Swedish Research Links). Support is given to high quality research, in all scientific areas.
The research must be relevant to the overall goals of Sweden’s international aid; to create preconditions for better living conditions for people living in poverty and under oppression, and to the overarching objective of Sweden´s Policy for Global Development; an equitable and sustainable global development. The funds must be used in accordance with the OECD/DAC’s definition of development assistance.
The Swedish Research Council will distribute SEK 170 million of the Government’s assistance budget to development research.

The Swedish Research Council has two different types of grants within development research – the international collaboration grant Swedish Research Links and Project Research Grant.
