Funding of research

Formas has the task of promoting and supporting research of the highest scientific quality and relevance within the areas of the Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning.

Each year the Formas Scientific Council allocates grant funding of more than SEK 1.3 billion to various research projects. Approximately half of the research funding is allocated to projects through open calls. This includes support for young scientists. The remainder of the funding is allocated primarily to targeted national and international initiatives, research programmes, co-funded research and strategic innovation programmes. Formas also supports communication programmes, conferences and workshops.
