Extension of the grant availability period, changes in the project

Extension of the grant availability period

Applications for an extension of the grant availability period should be addressed to the Foundation’s secretariat. A grant recipient is entitled to an extended grant availability period if the project manager has been prevented by illness, parental leave, service in the Armed Forces or trade-union or political office from completing his or her research. Grant availability period can also be extended in the event of particular circumstances outside the applicant’s control that have affected the possibility to complete the project within the appointed time. The application for an extended grant availability period must be submitted to the Foundation by e-mail by the project manager, with the grant administrator’s support. A statement specifying the particular reasons why, must be attached as well as a plan for how and when completion of the research project is intended to take place. You can find the form for application for change in an ongoing project at the bottom of the page.


If a research project is at risk of being significantly delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and cannot be completed within the grant availability period, The Foundation may grant an extension to the grant availability period. An application for extension of the grant availability period must be submitted to the Foundation towards the end of the grant availability period. It must include an explanation on how the Covid-19 outbreak caused the delay and, as usual, a plan for how and when the project is intended to be completed.


Other changes in an ongoing project

In order to apply for larger changes in a project, such as:

  • Change of project manager or project participant
  • Changes of scientific character
  • Larger changes in the project budget

use the form ‘Application for change in an ongoing project’, which you can find at the bottom of the page. The Foundation then makes a decision on these issues, after you as project manager have sent an application to the Foundation.

Contact the Foundation’s secretariat in case of changed contact information.
