Sida's program for development research (U-Forsk)

Call for applications to “Sida’s program for development research 2013”

The call for applications to “Sida’s program for development research 2013” is now open, closing date is April 3rd, 2012. During 2013 the total budget is 114 MSEK out of which 30 MSEK will be available for new applications. Applications within the area of global health research are handled by Vetenskapsrådet

The call is open to research applications in all disciplines, combining academic quality with high relevance for poverty reduction and equitable and sustainable global development. Individual researchers or teams of researchers working at universities or other research institutions in Sweden can apply for funding. Furthermore, Swedish researchers at the Nordic Institute for Asian Studies (NIAS) in Copenhagen are eligible to apply for funding.

Swedish involvement and participation in global development is dependent on the Swedish research competence for quality and relevant participation in various collaborations - bilaterally, regionally and internationally. The purpose of the call is to strengthen Swedish research of particular relevance to developing countries and research on global development areas where close cooperation with researchers and institutions internationally and in developing countries can provide important knowledge and quality dimensions. An internationally competitive Swedish research expertise in the development area is an important resource for the MFA, Sida and other relevant actors' activities. Global and regional development issues must be relevant to the poorest countries and populations. It is seen as positive if the application includes institutions in developing countries included in Sida's research cooperation.*
