Open Data - API containing information on funded projects

Open data refers to digital information in open formats that can be reused and shared freely for any purpose.

This application programming interface (API) makes basic data available, in machine-readable format, about projects we funded in our calls starting from 2006. Data in the API is updated daily and may be used freely without fees or other restrictions.

Classification

Formas’ funded projects are classified under a system of forms of assistance and forms of grants.

The following table shows the forms of assistance and grants for the projects included in the API. Direct assistance payments to a predetermined recipient as stated in Formas’ appropriation directions and transfers made by Formas under other funders’ calls are not included in the API.

Variabler

The variables for the project are shown in the table below. Formas has developed the API in partnership with the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova. Variables marked with an asterisk (*) are comparable to the corresponding variables in Vinnova’s API for funded projectsexternal link. Information about the administrating organisation, the project end date and the amount granted might change when a project is ongoing. The API presents current information. BeviljatDatum refers to the date when the original grant was awarded. Any date for subsequent decisions on awarding additional grants is not reported.
