Prisma is Formas´, Forte´s and the Swedish research council´s (VR) system for administration of research applications and grants. Prisma is also used by the funding bodies Karolinska institutet, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Institute for Educational Research and the Swedish National Space Agency.


To be able to apply for funding from one of the Prisma funders you must create a personal account in Prisma. This is valid both for applicants (project leader) and participating researchers. On your personal account you register CV and list of publications.

Besides participating researchers the applicant can invite participating administrators to her/his application, the purpose is for the invited to be able to support with checking or filling out parts of the application form (e.g. budget). A participating administrator also needs a personal account in Prisma, but not CV and list of publications.
