No requirement for applicants from multiple organisations
The foundation encourages Swedish-Norwegian applications but does not require applicants from multiple organisations.
Norwegian kronor and Norwegian as application language
For Swedish-Norwegian applications ”Swedish” and ”SEK” is to be understood as ”Swedish or Norwegian” and ”SEK or NOK”. This is also apparent in the application system. Special instructions apply for Norwegian funding, there is information about this in the application system as well.
Some expressions in the handbook are specific for Stiftelsen Lantbruksforskning, you can ignore those: The knowledge chain, sector areas, focus areas, innovation system.
The proposed projects potential for economic return doesn’t have to be described in applications to the foundation.
The foundation has two programme areas: ”Veterinary medicine, animal science, and technology science” and ”Social science and humanities”.
A review panel per programme area
The foundation has two review panels, one per programme area. The same review panel assesses the concept overview in stage 1 as well as the full research application in stage 2.
The limitation to overhead cost does not apply
The limitation to overhead cost of 25 % is not applicable.
