Formas announced a call for the development of methods and tools which can contribute research results to be transformed into practice and have a societal impact for sustainable spatial planning. It was possible to apply for projects up to two years for a maximum of SEK 2 million. In total Formas funded SEK 31 million for 2019-2020.
A webinar about the call with an FAQ (in Swedish) was arranged on February 14 at 10:30 CET.
The project should build upon results from an ongoing or previously ended research project. These does not have to been financed by Formas. The project should also use existing knowledge and theory about the implementation of research into practice. Formas welcome projects that can be related to the areas prioritized in the research agenda for sustainable spatial planning:
- Forskning för ett integrerat och hållbart samhällsbyggande (in Swedish)
- Research for integrated and sustainable spatial planning (in English, not layouted)
