USBE Research Institute
The USBE Research Institute was founded in order to promote research within USBE. The institute may award funding to individual researchers and research groups in internal competition on two occasions each year. In particular, funding is provided to strengthen new/emerging research areas (“seed money”), to support activities related to existing research programs, and to strengthen research collaboration with stakeholders.
Apply for grants from USBE Research Institute to:
- start new creative research projects (seed money),
- arrange conferences/workshops,
- and in general to strengthen and develop research
Entitled to apply for funding are persons with a position at USBE. Doctoral students should, however, attach a statement from the supervisor.
Applications can be short but should explicitly describe aim of research with a motivation for how the grant will be used and also, a description on how the project is expected to strengthen the research at USBE. The expected costs should be specified in a budget including over-head costs. As for seed-money applications, there should be a project description with a time-line (outline for the application for external funding including financier). The application should at the most, including everything, be 4 pages long written in Times New Roman, 12 pt. No CV is required.
Send your application digitally to Therese Sarlin at USBE. The application can be in Swedish or English, but we would appreciate if the application is in English.
Application times: October 15 and March 15.
The Institute’s annual planning
The USBE foundation provides funding to the Research Institute through the annual budget. The activities and budget of the institute are presented in the annual report from USBE.
The Institute’s organisation
The institute is governed by a steering committee chaired by the Rector of USBE and the research heads of each USBE department. The Committee is assigned to make decisions regarding applications and to follow up the result from previous allowances. Furthermore, the steering committee should discuss the general aim and direction of the Institute and anchor its activities within USBE.
