What kind of proposals do we grant money for?

With our grants, we want to stimulate and strengthen cross-disciplinary research ideas and collaborations. Occasionally, we offer special grants aimed at making use of research in societal processes.

What do we mean by cross-disciplinary research?

Multi- inter-, and transdisciplinary research is here defined as research that comprises theory, method or research approaches from more than one scientific discipline or fields of research. In multidisciplinary research the different theories, methods or approaches are used side by side, and in interdisciplinary research they are, at least to some extent, integrated. Transdisciplinary research is distinguished in its recognition and inclusion of other types of knowledge than scientific knowledge, such as practice and experience based knowledge and knowhow.
