Forte now announces the 2017 call for proposals regarding the International Grants. Within the call, it is possible to apply for three types of grants: Visiting Researcher Grants for incoming and outgoing researchers, and Conference Grants.

Visiting Researcher Grants

The purpose of the grant is to facilitate international contact networks and an exchange of experience between Swedish and overseas researchers. It should also promote the exchange of knowledge from the international research community to Swedish research environments, as well as contributing to the dissemination of Swedish research abroad.

The grant has two forms – incoming and outgoing. Incoming refers to international researchers wishing to visit a Swedish research institution. Outgoing refers to researchers based at a Swedish research institute who wish to visit a foreign research institution.

The grant is intended to primarily fund shorter stays to allow for research collaboration, an exchange of experience, as well as consultations. Stays for visiting researchers are funded for a minimum of 1 month and a maximum of 6 months.

Grant amount

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

Conference Grants

The purpose of the grant is to facilitate international contact networks and an exchange of experience between Swedish and overseas researchers. It should also promote the exchange of knowledge from the international research community to Swedish research environments, as well as contributing to the dissemination of Swedish research abroad.

The Conference Grant is able to cover costs for invited keynote speakers (travel, accommodation and board), funding participants from low-income countries and workshops for planning the conference.

Grant amount

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

Time plan

Deadline for applications – September 28th, 2017, at 2 PM (CET)
