Career Grant for Early-career Researchers

The Career Grant for Early-career Researchers call welcomes researchers who have recently received a doctorate or who are at an early stage of their career. You can apply for funding to conduct your own research project, where you formulate your own research question, within Formas’ areas of responsibility: Environment, Agricultural Sciences, and Spatial Planning. The purpose of the call is to give promising early-career researchers appropriate opportunities for taking the next step in their careers, encouraging an interdisciplinary direction and developing independence.

The Career Grant for Early-career Researchers call supports researchers in two different critical stages in their career development and is conducted in two tracks:

  • Research projects for career age 0–3 for individuals who have a doctorate issued from 1 January 2021 to 1 October 2024.
  • Research projects for career age 4–7 for individuals who have a doctorate issued from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2020.
