  • Disease due to environmental impact or life style factors
  • Treatment of chronic disease.

Funding Information

Eligibility Criteria

The date of issue will be considered to be the point in time when all the requirements of the degree were fulfilled (for example mandatory courses, the oral public defence of the doctoral thesis and the approved doctoral thesis).
  • The Swedish part of the grant will be administered by a Swedish Higher Education Institution (HEI), or another public organisation in Sweden that fulfils the Swedish Research Council’s requirements for administrating organisationsopens in new window and has been approved as an administrating organisation.
  • If funding is awarded to the project, the Swedish project leader must be employed by the administrating organisation when the grant period begins unless the Swedish Research Council, the administrating organisation or another employer (where applicable) agree otherwise. The employment must equal at least 20 percent of a full-time employment. He or she does not have to be employed by the administrating organisation when the application is submitted.
