New opportunity to apply for Strategic Mobility!

Strategic mobility is the call for you who want to broaden your horizons. The Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, finances the salary cost for you who, for a period of time, want to move between industry/business/government/hospitals to academia/research institutes, or the other way around.

The mission of SSF is to fund research of the highest quality that contributes to Sweden’s competitiveness and at the same time promote mobility both internationally, nationally and between universities, institutes and companies.

SSF has therefore set aside SEK 10 million for the investment in strategic mobility over a two-year period. Each grant within the program covers the salary of a researcher or an equivalent person during a four to twelve month exchange service in a sector other than that in which the person is active. During the stay, the guest researcher must conduct strategic research in one of the  prioritized areas of the foundation, which is science, technology and medicine.

The exchange normally takes place in Sweden, but the period can also be spent in another sector abroad or in the form of people with valuable expertise from abroad coming to another sector in Sweden, if it is justified how this contributes to the development of Swedish competitiveness.

The purpose of the program is to increase personal mobility, knowledge transfer and cross-fertilization between sectors.

Please write the application in English!

The last day to apply is  September 7 2021 at 14:00. Earliest project start is  January 1 2022.
