This year’s call for research funding from the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative is still open. If you perform research in taxonomy or systematics, you can apply for up to SEK 3,500,000 for an individual project.
The research should focus on the taxonomy or systematics of multicellular organisms that are poorly known in Sweden or the Nordic countries. The funding is adminsistrated by SLU Swedish Species Information Centre.
For example, funds can be used to hire a doctoral student, postdoctoral fellow or researcher. The project’s emphasis will be on Swedish species, but it may also include higher systematics and a larger geographical area. It is also possible to apply for grants for inventories if they are clearly linked to research.
The last date to apply is May 26.
