Stockholm University
Stockholm University is the home of outstanding education and research, and a place where open minds meet, discuss and develop
 
SEK 19 million per year has been earmarked to support the initiative, which is part of the University’s strategy for 2011-2013 to increase international collaboration.

Grants for visiting lecturers and post-docs
Funding is available to bring outstanding guest lecturers and post-docs to Stockholm University. Any department at the University is entitled to apply; however, the university’s partner universities outside the EU/EAA will be given priority as long as the department doesn’t have any academic grounds to invite researchers from elsewhere.

Visits for which grants are awarded must take place before the end of 2013.

Travel grants for researchers
Grants are available for researchers at Stockholm University seeking to travel abroad with the specific aim of building an international network for collaboration, workshops, research planning, conferences or similar. Any trip funded by this grant must be completed by the end of 2013.

Grants for language support and translation
Funding is to be made available to enable research to be presented or published for or in conjunction with researchers from leading international universities. The publication and/or presentation of the work must take place before the end of 2013.

Additional information
There is no restriction as to the number of applications that can be made from each faculty. However, departments with considerable funds in reserve not earmarked for international activities should use these funds in the first instance.

Applications
Applications should be made to the appropriate faculty committee. Each faculty committee is responsible for evaluating the applications within its faculty and will be required to rank the applications in order of merit. The faculty committee will also recommend the amount that should be awarded to each project.

The first application deadline was February 1, 2011. The ranking of applicants are to be sent to the Vice-Chancellor by February 22, 2011.

A second round of applications will occur later during the spring. Applications for the second round should be submitted no later than April 1, 2011. Applications will be ranked and the Vice-Chancellor will be notified by the faculty by April 26 at the latest.

The Vice-Chancellor will announce as soon as possible thereafter which applications have been awarded funding. Applications from the first round will be notified no later than March 3; applications from the second round will be notified no later than May 12.
