The postdoc review panel assesses all applications for postdoc grants received through the annual open call, regardless of the focus area of the research. The research must be relevant to Forte’s overall areas of responsibility, health, working life and welfare.

Postdoc grants are targeted at researchers in the beginning of their careers. The grants provide researchers the opportunity to continue their research career after obtaining their PhD. The grant is awarded for 2 years and corresponds to a full-time salary.
