Description of call for proposal

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research announces the availability of a total of SEK 240 million in grants in a national call for proposals directed towards research infrastructure that meet the highest international scientific standards and strengthen present or future Swedish-based industry and society. This initiative has a focus on infrastructure supporting research within the SSF’s priority areas. SSF:s selected Research Infrastructure Fellows will be supported by grants of SEK 15 million for a period of 5 years (incl. overheads) to be used for salary, research infrastructure tools, and running costs. After two and a half years, a programme committee will make site visits to follow up the implementation of the grant, which may affect funding for the remaining period.
