Dr Åke Olsson Foundation for Hematological Research

Dr Åke Olsson Foundation hereby invites applications for grants for Hematological Research, primarily in the area of myeloma and leukemia.

Purpose

The purpose of the foundation is to support hematological research, primarily in the area of myeloma and leukemia. Hematological research in this context refers to both basic biomedical and applied clinical research.

The foundation supports hematology researchers at Karolinska Institutet who are at an important but early stage of their career and are therefore ineligible for more traditional grants. The foundation strives to serve as an initiator for the development of new expertise in the field of hematology.

In recent years, many big sponsors of scientific research have shifted their focus from financing individual researchers for limited projects to financing larger research groups involved in comprehensive research programmes. Thus, there is a great need today for grants directed towards individual researchers, not yet established as leaders of large projects. By the same token, there is also a great need to support smaller, limited projects.  

Eligibility

Young researchers, affiliated with Karolinska Institutet, who have earned a doctoral degree but are not yet fully established as leaders of research projects, are eligible to apply. Adjunct senior lecturers or professors at KI are also eligible to apply. Application for funding regarding a limited project are welcome.

Amount

Awarded grants varies between 300,000 and 500,000 SEK per person; however, in certain cases the amount may be more, such as for the initial phase of a larger project.

Upon special request, the grant may be used to pay the applicant’s salary.

Application

The application must be submitted digitally. The online form will be available ​through KI Prisma during the application period, February 7 – 21, 2017. The application period closes 2.00 pm.

Decision

Decision of grant will be taken by the Board of the Foundation. All applicants will be notified by e-mail in May.

Grant recipients must submit an annual financial and scientific report to the foundation concerning the sponsored research project during the grant period.

Attachments

  1. Research programme (no more than 15,000 characters)
  2. A popular science summary, incl. titel, in Swedish (approximately 1,500 characters)
  3. Publication list for the applicant
  4. Publication list for any co-applicants
