Who can apply?

If you are a researcher and you wish to apply for funding from the Research Council, you may do so in agreement with your research organisation. If you receive funding it is the organisation who is the Project Owner.

From and including 2022, all grant recipients that are research organisations or public sector bodies (Project Owners and partners) must have a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) available on their website. This must be in place when they sign the grant agreement for projects awarded funding from the Research Council.

Approved research organisations

A research organisation is a private or public entity or semi-public consortium whose primary goal is to independently conduct fundamental research and/or applied research (industrial research and experimental development).
