Mobility Grants for Internationalisation
The aim of Mobility Grants for Internationalisation is to strengthen Swedish research and higher education by developing and establishing international partnerships. The programme supports projects of high scientific quality which are clearly contributing to the activities of participating institutions.
Applicants should have obtained their PhD as well as be employed and active at a Swedish university. Projects may last for up to three years. The proposed project must encompass at least one Swedish and at least one foreign party. The foreign party is required to co-fund the project on a corresponding level as applied for from STINT. Applicants may have on-going projects in the Initiation Grants programme, but otherwise there must not be any on-going STINT projects.
The principal collaborating party shall be outside the EU/EFTA area. Applications with British higher education institutions as principal foreign partners will be considered formally invalid for this call, as the future EU-UK relationship in the field of research and higher education is yet to be decided upon.
The ideal partnership project will have activities encompassing research as well as higher education, although STINT also accepts pure research partnerships. It is of particular importance for young researchers and doctoral students to participate in the exchanges. In this programme, STINT wants to encourage new collaborative patterns and will not prioritise long-standing partnerships. The partnership must be balanced, i.e. the benefits and the personnel exchange should not be primarily in one direction.
Applications will be assessed by experts, focusing on how the proposed international partnership fulfils the following three criteria:
- contribution to the institutions’ internationalisation
- planning and support
- scientific quality and novelty
Please note that only scientific results from the last five years are taken into consideration for the assessment.
Applications should be made in English and submitted through STINT’s application system.
The final result depends on a STINT decision.
This call closes 15.00 (CEST),
