Extension of the grant availability period

For projects that have been granted funding before 2019, applications for an extended grant availability period must be addressed to Ann-Charlott Karlsson at Södertörn University. The application should be sent by e-mail to ann-charlott.karlsson@sh.se, stating the specific reasons for extension and a general plan for how and when the research project is intended to be completed (there is no special form).


For projects that have been granted funding in 2019 or later, 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.


For all projects, irrespective of the year of the grant award, questions of academic nature applying to extension of the grant availability period, such as for example replacement of the project manager or a project participant, must be addressed to the Foundation’s secretariat.


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.
