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] (Tina Trollås), Research Services, if you have any questions.
