The Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (FORTE) has the mission of financing research and spreading research information. The programme support helps research projects for longer periods with a minimum of two million SEK. The post-doctorate grant is meant to support young doctorates with a full time salary of up to 800 000 SEK per year. Grants are given to research projects in the top of their field, or those that are expected to reach the top with the help from the grant.
The grant is either for a research project, or for a single post-doctorate researcher.
