An information seminar about the Call will take place on 5 September in English, during the last weeks of the call, SI also organises an online Q&A session aimed at Swedish main applicants who have started an application.
The Swedish Institute has also launched a special call for funding as a response to the present situation in Ukraine and the resulting need for extra support, cooperation, contact and expertise. Applicants can choose between three thematic categories: support for target groups within academia in Ukraine (projects aimed at supporting doctoral students and younger researchers (postdocs) in Ukraine); support for local public sector in Ukraine (projects should facilitate collaboration in order to raise the institutional competence of the local public sector in Ukraine in areas that are important for creating the conditions for reconstruction and a sustainable Ukrainian society) as well as support for youth and young adults in Ukraine (projects aimed at supporting youth and young adults in Ukraine at educational institutions equivalent to upper secondary school and academic undergraduate education).
Both calls are open until 20 September. Find more information here.
