The Annual Open Call


The Annual Open Call 2017 is now open

We have now opened our largest call for grant applications – the Annual Open Call. As in previous years, the call consists of three sub-calls: Research and development projects, Research and development projects for future research leaders and Mobility starting grants.

The call opened on the 28th February and all of the sub-calls will close on the 6th April at 14:00.

An important development this year is that we now have ten review panels. The review panels are broadly defined to encompass various social, economic and environmental goals within Formas’ areas of responsibility. The new panels are inspired by the Global Sustainable Development Goals while also intended to accommodate the breadth and number of applications (more than a thousand) that are expected to be submitted.

The launch of the call on 28th February also signals the start of our information meetings for the Annual Open Call. The first meeting is today, 1st March, in Umeå – followed by Gothenburg 2nd March, Linköping 6th March, Uppsala 7th March, Lund 8th March and Stockholm 9th March.
