Grants and scholarships
Here we publish calls for proposals that come to the attention of the Faculty Office. You can also use the online database Research Professional. The database picks up calls for proposals for research funding from all over the world. Many members of staff are aware of it, but far from everyone. The first time you visit the database you need to set up your profile (using a computer with a physical connection to the LU network) and create a search for the areas that are of interest to you. You will then receive an email every Friday with current calls that match your search. Please contact tina.trollas [at] fs.lu.se (Tina Trollås), Research Services, if you have any questions.
Apply for funds from the EU project MAX4ESSFUN
During the year, you can apply for funds from the EU project MAX4ESSFUN. The project aims to promote interregional research collaborations in which neutron radiation and synchrotron light can be used. The application deadlines are 25 August and 26 October. You can apply even if you have already been awarded a grant. Contact kajsa_m.paulsson [at] med.lu.se if you have any questions.

In preparation for applying to KAW: Updated internal management
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) have made some regulatory changes prior to this year’s call for applications for funding of research projects with high scientific potential.

Apply for teaching staff mobility and professional development funding
Lund University staff can apply for funding from the EU Erasmus+ programme for teaching staff mobility and professional development at one of LU’s partner universities in Europe. The application deadline is 29 September.
Apply for funding from KAW
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) has issued a call for applications for funding for research projects of high scientific potential. Lund University has an internal procedure for applications, with a deadline of 27 September at 09:00. Employees at the Faculty of Science are to submit their applications to tobias.nilsson [at] science.lu.se and almut.kelber [at] biol.lu.se.
Apply for postdoc scholarships from NordForsk
NordForsk is inviting applications for postdoc scholarships aiming to stimulate a new generation of neutron researchers who can benefit from ESS. The application deadline is 30 August.
Apply for grants from National Geographic
Researchers resident in Northern Europe can apply for grants from National Geographic through the Global Exploration Fund. The National Geographic Society is one of the world’s largest non-profit organisations in science and education. Over 126 years, National Geographic has supported thousands of researchers, adventurers and conservationists. Their efforts, images and experiences have inspired and helped people to understand how serious the global challenges are.
