Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation Grant Program: Seeking Applications for Promoting Human Health

Deadline: 20 May 2018

Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation is seeking applications for its Grant program to promote human health by supporting the development of better food, natural medicines and healing practices, and to support research for a healthier way of life, which in itself may have a disease preventive effect.

A central idea is to focus more on preventive active care than reactive care to combat symptoms. The same applies to the agricultural and food areas where the focus should be to find methods that can prevent various problems instead of focusing on their manifestations. The focus should not be on tackling problems, but rather finding ways to prevent their occurrence.

Prioritized Research Areas

  • Better and healthier food: For Gosta Videgard an important goal was the improvement in quality of agricultural products through agriculture without toxins and artificial substances. The foundation therefore supports research and development based on the principles of organic and biodynamic food production or other methods and orientations that promote this goal. Research should be in line with IFOAMs (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) principles of organic production.
  • Nutrition and way of life: Gosta Videgard was very interested in significance of the diet for humans. The Foundation therefore supports research into the role of the diet in the treatment of diseases and strengthening the body’s resistance.
  • Complementary medicine and natural medicines: Gosta Videgard had a keen interest in complementary medicine and its goal of curing diseases by using the body’s own innate healing abilities and utilize natural healing powers. He appreciated and also practiced the basic idea of avoiding artificial chemicals as far as possible.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Ekhagastiftelsen does not have any restrictions regarding from which country an application can come.
  • For applications that do not come from Europe or North America (USA and Canada) Ekhagastiftelsen requires that applicants have cooperation with a swedish institution. The partner must be involved in the research project. Please be sure to describe the details of the cooperation.
  • Ekhagastiftelsen does not have any formal requirements that applications can only come from institutions (universities, colleges, research institutions, etc.).

Applicants can submit their application via email at the address given on the website.
