Forte participates in various collaborations, projects and networks that aim to increase efforts and knowledge exchange in the global arena. Read more about our current global collaborations below.
Indian collaboration for ageing and health
On 1 June 2015, Forte signed an agreement with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for research collaboration in the field of ageing and health. The collaboration began in 2014 with a workshop in New Delhi focused on research and research needs in ageing and health. In September 2016, Forte and ICMR announced a joint call for proposals in this field, which closed in January 2017.
South African collaboration for health equality
In 2015, Forte initiated a bilateral cooperation with the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC), a medical research organisation in South Africa. In 2016 and 2017 conducted joint call for proposals for collaborative projects in inequalities in health and health systems. The projects funded through these calls are now approaching the end. Forte and SAMRC are planning for future joint initiatives.
Canadian summer programme on ageing
Forte has an agreement with the Institute of Aging at the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR) to fund Swedish participants in their training programme ”Summer Program in Aging”. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 summer programme, with the focus area Longitudinal studies in ageing, is postponed until 2021. Forte plans to fund four Swedish participants. More information will be published among our calls for proposals.
