The grant relates to financial support for holding conferences hosted by a Swedish institution of higher education or scientific/scholarly organisation. The intention is to facilitate contacts and exchange of experience between researchers, and to contribute to the dissemination of research.

 The financial support is intended for national conferences within our research areas, held in Sweden and open to all researchers in the field. We encourage to include international elements such as invited speakers. However, international conferences and congresses are not financed via this call. Forte can contribute to the financing of Nordic conferences, if the added value of the Swedish hosting is made clear.

Grant limit

The maximum grant amount is SEK 300,000.
