Call for proposals
The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research awards grants to strategic research in science, engineering and medicine totalling SEK 600 million annually. The goal is that the research should ultimately be of benefit to Swedish industry and society. Some ten or so calls for proposals are announced each year, formulated slightly differently according to the nature of the research being funded. The grants mainly take the form of research group grants and individual grants, the latter through the well-established programmes Future Research Leaders and Ingvar Carlsson Award. SSF also sponsors programmes that encourage mobility between academia and industry.
