Immerse yourself in a day dedicated to funding your research and innovation pursuits through valuable insights, expert guidance, and lively discussions. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or just beginning your academic journey, this event is for you.

Kick starting the morning session, we will dive into a series of presentations from funding agencies active in the region. Discover the latest funding opportunities, trends, and insider tips directly from the source. You will have the chance to mingle with funder representatives, SLU external funding and innovation experts, and other researchers over lunch, gaining valuable insight on navigating the funding landscape.

In the afternoon, we will hold a series of short taster sessions, led by experts from across SLU, to introduce you to practical tools and actionable insights to unlock your research funding and innovation potential.

Join us for a day of inspiration and collaboration at SLU’s Funding Day, Alnarp.
