On 29 March 2016, the Swedish International Programme Office for Education and Training decided upon the sixteenth round of Linnaeus Palme Exchange Programme grants, for the period 1 July 2016 – 30 June 2017. A total amount of SEK 15 Million was distributed to 61 projects at Swedish universities – a sharp decrease in number compared to last year (when 212 projects were granted SEK 61 Million). The grants are funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). Out of 61 projects given grants, 8 are with India and one with Sri Lanka. No projects were granted involving Bangladesh, and Nepal, nor the other countries in South Asia.  Go for the full list.new
Besides, the Programme Office has decided upon specific applications for planning new Linnaeus Palme projects. Here, 14 applications were accepted out of 86, with a total amount of SEK 1.12 m being distributed. One of these accepted proposals relate to South Asia, coming from Karolinska Institutet. Go for the full list

Under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science, the Swedish Research Council offers research grants to all the disciplines. In 2001 it replaced the separate research councils for science; medicine; etc, that existed previously. The total budget is 2 500 Million SEK a year. The Swedish Research Council provides support for basic research of the highest scientific quality in all fields of science. The goal, as formulated by the Swedish Government, is to establish Sweden as a leading research nation. There are three scientific councils within the Swedish Research Council: one for Humanities and the Social Sciences, one for Medicine and one for the Natural and Engineering Sciences. It also includes a Committee for Educational Science and a Committee for Research Infrastructures. The Swedish Research Council is one of the most important funders of Swedish South Asia related research.

Swedish Research Links

Introduced by Sida and the Swedish Research Council in 2002, Swedish Research Links aim to stimulate cooperation between researchers in Sweden and those in selected developing countries. The long-term aim of the programme is to contribute to mutual scientific and socioeconomic development of the countries involved through funding for support to collaborative research projects of high scientific quality and mutual relevance. The programme is open to researchers in basic and applied research within all academic disciplines. From 2013, The Swedish Research Council has taken over the responsibility for all Swedish development research. Read more.
