For the fourth year in a row, an internal call for support for research infrastructure grants is now open for applications. Deadline for submission of application is September 17.
The infrastructure grant is intended for "such infrastructure that provides new conditions for world-class research". This can be anything from a facility, a specialty laboratory, a database to instruments or similar. An absolute requirement is that the infrastructure is available to users outside the home department.
The funding can be granted partly for new procurement or construction of new infrastructure, partly for upgrading and completing existing infrastructure, but also specifically for developing accessibility and user support.
Last year's announcement resulted in six research infrastructures being granted a total of approximately 30 million, for the period 2018-2022. The Vice-Chancellor decision on this support is available here (in Swedish only).
The available amount for the 2018 call is a total of 25 million, for the period 2019-2023. The plan is for the announcement to be made annually.
Deadline for submission of application this year is September 17.
