Forte announces Conference Grants and Visiting Researcher Grants annually. In mid-August 2017, this year’s calls for applications will open.

Conference Grants 2017

The Conference Grant is designed to support international conferences hosted by Swedish organisations. The purpose is to facilitate international contact networks and an exchange of experience between Swedish and overseas researchers, transfer knowledge from the international research community to Swedish research environments, as well as contributing to the dissemination of Swedish research abroad.

The grant from Forte can only cover a portion of the overall costs of the conference. The maximum amount granted is 300 000 SEK.

Visiting Researcher Grants 2017

The purpose of the Visiting Researcher Grant is to facilitate international contact networks and an exchange of experience between Swedish and overseas researchers and to promote the career development of young scientists. Grants are awarded for a maximum of six months.

Grants are awarded in accordance to the level of costs in the host country. The maximum amount granted is 500 000 SEK.

Time plan

Both calls open in mid-August and close during the autumn 2017. Final decisions are planned for November 2017.
