Research networks support either creating new networks of researchers or maintaining ones that are already established. The purpose of these networks must be to contribute to forthcoming research through scientific meetings and contacts where researchers can define, demarcate and formulate research ideas that may eventually lead to applications for research funds. The financial scope is maximum SEK 150,000 per network for maximum of one year. Read more here.
