During the operating period of 2020-2023, SKC has decided to fund research with 32 MSEK. This translates to 9 research projects in total, all of which are formulated as either doctoral or post-doctoral research positions.
The nominal period for a doctoral student position is four years, and that of a post-doctoral student is two years. However, research by its nature implies working with the unknown and therefore many of the projects are expected to run longer than 2023. SKC will fund the research projects to the agreed-upon amount regardless of delays, provided that the research continues to be conducted in line with the research project scope.
Proposals for new research projects are welcome in connection with the next operating period. Calls for applications will be announced in the second half of 2023.
