Swedish and Nordic research funding
The majority of applications to Swedish funding agencies and sponsors can be submitted directly to the funding body without passing the central administration of KI and do not require approval from the Grants Office. These applications generally require a signature from the head of the department.
A number of Swedish sponsors require a signature and letter of support from the Vice-Chancellor of KI to be included as part of the application. KI and the Grants Office have therefore set up an internal prioritisation process to facilitate this application process.
Applications for international grants (for example NordForsk) need to be signed by the head of Grants Office, Björn Kull. An Application Assurance Form, which is completed by the PI, Head of Department and Head of Administration is a prerequisite for these applications.
