Applied welfare research - Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte)

Forte is now issuing the first call for proposals within the framework of the 10-year, national research programme for applied welfare research. The call covers project grants, postdoc grants and practice-oriented research fellows. A total of around SEK 94 million is available over three years (2018–2020).

Project grants are directed at researchers who have doctoral degrees and are employed at higher education institutions or in the social services. Research projects are to be based on the profession’s and user/client issues and needs. Consequently, research projects are to be carried out in collaborations with social services, e.g. through regional support and collaboration structures (RSS), local R & D units, managers and personnel.

Postdoc grants are to give newly qualified PhDs the opportunity to continue their research careers with a focus on client and practice-oriented research. Forte is keen to receive applications involving international exchanges.

Grants for practice-oriented research fellows shall give people with doctoral degrees working in the social services the opportunity to produce research and to translate research experience into practice, thereby promoting continuous development and improvement initiatives. Grants cover the costs of a half-time salary over three years.

Closing date: 12 April 2018
