Description of call for proposal

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research announces SEK 300 million in a national call for proposals for problem-, challenge- or application-driven research projects that meet the highest international scientific standards. The call aims to stimulate collaborative interdisciplinary research within the area of Materials for Energy Applications, of strategic relevance to present or future Swedish-based industry and to society. Selected projects will be supported by grants of SEK 4-7 million per year for a period of 5 years (incl. overheads) to be used for salaries (senior researchers, postdocs, PhD students, etc.), research tools, and running costs according to the needs of the project. Funding for the last two years will be contingent upon a successful midterm evaluation.
