The Board of Research hereby invites applications for research grants from the Gösta Fraenckel Foundation for medical research, primarily in aviation medicine.


The purpose of the foundation is to support medical research in the field of aviation medicine and related disciplines. This includes, for example, physiological reactions to low-oxygen environments, changes in atmospheric pressure or changes to the direction and magnitude of gravitational pull.

It also includes fields of inquiry that although not directly relevant to aviation medicine still have a bearing on its concerns. Both human and animal studies are taken into consideration. 

Applications may be made for grants for research and/or study trips.


Registered doctoral students, as well as researchers affiliated to a department at Karolinska Institutet, are eligible to apply.


Awarded grants varies between 50,000 and 200,000 SEK per person.


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


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