The program, which does not require dispensation, simplifies for researchers from industry or academia to work with the other party by SSF financing the payroll cost of the person who changes. New for this year is that researchers from the public sector  also can apply.

The Foundation for Strategic Research has allocated EUR 15 million for a strategic mobility initiative for a period of two years. Each grant within the program covers a researcher’s or a corresponding person’s salary for a four to twelve month exchange service in a sector other than the one the person is currently active within. During the stay, guest researcher shall conduct strategic research within any of the Foundation’s areas of responsibility, which are:

  • Information, Communication and Systems Technologies (ICT)
  • Life sciences with a focus on technologies and Bioengineering
  • Materials Research with a focus on new and better functionality and production.

This year, Hospitals is defined as the business sector. One can apply for exchange between academia and hospital. Government, county council and municipality can also be considered as “business partners” in cases where the applicant can justify how it strengthens Sweden’s future competitiveness.

The closing date for the application is 6 September, 2018, at. 14.00. Earliest project launch can will be 2019-01-01. Please write the application in English!
