Research Grants

The number of grants awarded can vary. As of 2022 (application by Dec 2021), one grant per year is awarded to a junior researcher (max 5 years since PhD). Thanks to our generous donors, there has been a positive growth in the total grant sum. In 2021, almost 1 million SEK (97.000 EUR) could be awarded.
