  • Collaborative Projects are larger projects which should involve knowledge exchange, capacity building or method development.
    • Applicants and their international partner can apply for up to SEK 500,000 per 12-month period. A project may last 24 months at most from funding being granted (in other words, applicants can apply for max. SEK 1 million).
