The instructions for applications for funding from Östersjöstiftelsen 2021 are now available!


The instructions include four different forms of support. As before, funding for postdoctoral projects and for two- and three-year projects, can be applied for. Now funding for grand projects and research networks is also available for application. Note that the design of previous forms of support has changed as new forms of support have been introduced.

Grand projects are applied for by a group of researchers and can include both postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students. A strong international element must characterize the research group. The time and financial scope is a maximum of 5 years and a maximum of SEK 5 million a year.

Research networks support either creating new networks of researchers or maintaining ones that are already established. The network members should contribute to forthcoming research through scientific meetings and contacts. A great majority of the participants must come from research environments outside Sweden. The financial scope is SEK 150,000 per network for maximum of one year.

The instructions are separate for each form of support, in addition there are special instructions for the application system. The instructions, an overview of the forms of support, questions and answers, as well as a table explaining who can apply for which form of support are available in both Swedish and English. See For researchers.

The application system opens on Monday, 11 January 2021 at 9:00 am.

The last application date for two- and three-year projects and postdoctoral projects in stage 1, as well as for grand projects and research networks is on Wednesday, 3 February 2021 at 3:00 pm.
