The purpose of STINT’s activity is to strengthen the competitiveness of Swedish universities and colleges through the development of international relationships. The internationalisation of higher education and research is mainly based on concerted, long-term efforts. Sometimes however, it is important to be able to act quickly when the opportunity arises. STINT offers Initiation Grants for this purpose.
Initiation grants are given for the implementation of short-term projects targeting the building of new and strategically interesting international relationships. Collaborations with partners outside the EU/EFTA are eligible (find out more about STINT and Brexit).
Applications may be submitted continuously throughout the year. Assessment of received applications starts on the following dates in 2022: 1 March, 17 May, 6 September and 15 November.
Applications shall be submitted at 3 pm at the latest on the above-mentioned dates.
Complete applications must be submitted through STINT’s application system.
Russia and Belarus
In line with the Government's announcement, contacts and collaborations with state institutions in Russia and Belarus shall cease immediately and no new contacts or commitments should be initiated.
However, individual Russian and Belarusian researchers are not automatically equated with state institutions. Therefore the higher education institutions must ensure that any contacts and collaborations are appropriate.
