SSF has now decided on a Research Strategy for 2012-2017.
The following main areas will be prioritized during the coming five-year period:
The Foundation will primarily use the following types of grants: Synergy Grants, previously known as Framework grants, the individual grants Future Research Leaders, the Ingvar Carlsson Award, and Strategic Mobility.
Synergy Grants support research carried out by 2 to 4 collaborating scientists with complementary competencies to solve an import scientific problem. One of these scientists should be main applicant and the other co-applicants.
Micro Grants can be considered as a tool for the Governing Board, but only on its own initiative. Similarly, “Wild Cards” can be used in connection with joint international projects, for example. Such grants should target individuals, not groups of researchers.
