Younger researchers in focus

Publicerad 2008-06-27


International cooperation and mobility are efficient ways of supporting renewal in higher education and research. STINT offers a number of programmes to support new initiatives which are open to both senior and junior researchers. The competition is often very keen, and in 2007 STINT therefore introduced a new programme – STINT Institutional Grants for Younger Researchers – in order to expand the opportunities for especially promising young researchers to collaborate with prominent foreign research groups.

The programme is aimed at young researchers who early on in their career – not more than seven years after completing their PhD – wish to build up international cooperation with foreign colleagues in a similar position. The intention is to help to create more attractive Swedish research environments and allow for younger researchers to develop lasting international networks.

A list of grants awarded in 2007 can be found here.

The STINT Foundation Short Term Stipends provide opportunities for faculty at Swedish universities to spend a maximum of three months at a foreign academic institution. The programme also provides opportunities to invite foreign faculty to Swedish universities as visiting researchers or academic teachers. The programme covers all areas of research and higher education. Applications can be submitted at any time during the year.

In May-June this year STINT has participated in information activities arranged by younger faculties at universities in Stockholm, Lund, Linköping and Umeå to highlight the new Institutional Grants Programme for Younger Researchers. We plan to visit the universities in Göteborg, Luleå, Uppsala and Växjö in September for further information activities.

The application system is now open for applications to the STINT Institutional Grants Programme for Younger Researchers. The deadline is 15 October 2008. The system is open all year round for Short Term Stipends.
