Research projects under the SLU Forest Damage Centre develop the knowledge, modelling tools and technology necessary for preventing and managing forest damage. We welcome research projects driven by initative as well as those based on topical needs within the field. If you research at SLU and want to contribute to expanding knowledge relating to forest damage, you can apply for co-funding or funding through our calls.

On this page, you can learn more about current calls, funding application opportunities and application procedures.

Current Calls

There are currently no open calls.

Project co-funding

The SLU Forest Damage Centre can only co-finance projects that do not fall under the SLU co-funding policy.

Co-funding must be in dialogue with the SLU Forest Damage Centre management group. This must be held at least two months before you need the final approval for submitting a funding application to the relevant funding body.

For each case, the SLU Forest Damage Centre will assess whether the funding being saught is relevant to the centre’s activities. Projects that may be eligible must have clear national links and address forest damage.

Shared co-funding refers to the SLU Forest Damage Centre contributing a maximum of 50 per cent of the required amount.

Otherwise, the SLU guidelines for co-funding projects at the Faculty of Forest Sciences apply (SLU.sfak.2022.1.1.1-387) (in Swedish only).
