Annual open call for proposals 2019 – step 1
This is the first of two steps in Forte’s annual open call for proposals 2019. The call shall contribute to increasing the knowledge in Forte’s areas of responsibility: health, working life and welfare. In total, around SEK 300 million is reserved for the period 2020–2023.
The annual open call is open to applications within Forte’s overall areas of responsibility: health, working life and welfare. The purpose of the call is to allow for analysis of advanced knowledge and to contribute to such knowledge in designated research areas or issues. For more detailed descriptions of the research areas that we support, see the page Review panels in the annual open call.
Three types of grants are available within this call: project grant, postdoc grant and junior researcher grant. Only one application per grant type is allowed. However, the same principal applicant cannot apply for both a project grant and a junior research grant. If you are applying for a junior research grant but do not move forward in the application process, your application will be considered a three-year project grant application. More information about the grant types can be found in the document “more information about the call” below.
The application process for project and junior research grants is divided into two steps. In step 1, the applicant submits a project outline to Forte. After a consideration process, a selection of outlines will be accepted to step 2. These applicants are then welcomed to submit a full application.
Postdoc grants are applied for in a one-step process.

Project grants are grants for individual research projects. The grants are approved for two or three years.
- Grant amount: Maximum SEK 5 million for three-year projects and SEK 3 million for two-year projects.
- Eligibility: To apply for a project grant you must have obtained a doctoral degree no later than the date of the call closing (5 February 2019). 2 (5)
Junior research grant
Junior research grants are grants for junior researchers. They can be applied for up to six years after completing your doctoral degree. The grant is essentially the same as a threeyear project grant plus a fixed amount of SEK 1 million for a fourth year. The grant shall cover at least 40 percent of the junior researcher’s salary.
- Grant amount: Maximum of SEK 5 million for the first three years. The fourth year has a fixed amount of SEK 1 million. In total, you may apply for a maximum of SEK 6 million.
- Eligibility: To apply for a junior research grant, you must have obtained a doctoral degree between 5 February 2013 and 5 February 2019. If you completed your doctoral degree before 5 February 2013, you can deduct time for parental leave, military service or similar. Instructions regarding this can be found below in this document.
The purpose of the postdoc grant is to give newly graduated researchers an opportunity to continue their research career soon after completing their doctoral degree. You apply for postdoc grants alone, without other participating researchers. The grant form covers two years and is intended to cover a full-time salary. Forte wishes to promote mobility and we are therefore keen to see the postdoctoral period being based somewhere other than where the doctoral degree was obtained.
- Grant amount: SEK 2 million (SEK 1 million/year).
- Eligibility: To apply for a postdoc grant, you must have obtained a doctoral degree between 5 February 2017 and 5 February 2019. Your thesis and planned research project must fall within Forte’s areas of responsibility. If you completed your doctoral degree before 5 February 2017, you can deduct time for e.g. parental leave or military service. Instructions regarding this can be found below in this document.
