The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research invites proposals for its strategic mobility grant for personal mobility between academia and industry. This aims to increase personal mobility and cross-fertilisation between academia and industry.
The guest researcher may carry out research, research-based activities or technical development within one of the foundation’s spheres of responsibility: natural science, engineering and medicine.
Funding & Duration
Individual grants are worth up to SEK 1.5M (approx. AUD $229,000) including overheads.
The duration of the project shall be equivalent to four to 12 months working full-time.
Researchers from academia and the business sector may apply. The host institutes or departments may be situated in either Sweden or abroad as long as the exchange is between one academic and one industry unit. Applicants should be well established in their current work and should have tenured posts or such appointments that they are expected to return to their original activities.
