Description of call for proposal

The aim of the programme is to identify and support young, well-qualified postdocs who intend to start an independent, lasting, and creative research career upon their return to Sweden. The research to be conducted should have a potential to strengthen Sweden’s future competitiveness. The Foundation has set aside MSEK 48 to fund twelve three-year grants, each of MSEK 4 (including overhead). The grants include a personal scholarship of SEK 60 000 that will be awarded to each recipient, in appreciation of their relocation. The grants should be used to assemble a research group. Up to one-third of the grant may be used to cover the recipient's own salary. A leadership training programme will be arranged for the grantees. Participation in this leadership programme is compulsory.
