Horizon 2020: 2016-2017 calls for proposals launched
The Horizon 2020 work programmes with the calls for the years 2016-2017 have been launched. You can find them here under the heading Work programmes – 2016-2017 – Main WP.
Three potentially interesting parts for BECC researchers are:
European Research Council individual grants (ERC)
Eligibility: any nationality, any age. Applicants must be leaders in their respective field(s) of research and must demonstrate significant achievement in the last 10 years.
Eligibility: Researchers of any nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD (plus 18 months for each child), a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal.
Gothenburg Internal support for ERC applications
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation
Grants for research projects with high research potential, usually of a basic research nature and focused on a single research issue. Projects within new research fields, above all of a boundary-crossing nature, are prioritised. The project should preferably be within science, engineering and medicine.
Gothenburg internal information. First internal dead-line is in September 2016 (external dead-line 1 Feb 2017)
Lund internal management rules. First internal dead-line is in September 2016 (external dead-line 1 Feb 2017)
Knut and Alice Wallenberg Fellows (WAF)
Wallenberg Academy Fellows is a carreer programme that provides long-term funding for the most promising young researchers of all disciplines to develop their projects.
Swedish universities are invited to nominate researchers for the program Wallenberg Academy Fellows. The program is open to researchers in all academic disciplines: medicine, engineering and technology, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities/religion, and also in the interfaces between them. A new rule is that only one internal candidate can be nominated for each external nomination.
Gothenburg internal information. First internal deadline during autumn 2016 (Preliminary external deadline February 2017)
Lund internal management rules. First internal deadline is in September 2016 (Preliminary external deadline February 2017)
Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, Volkswagen Stiftung and Wellcome Trust
The funding initiative addresses the future challenges facing Europe in respect of climate change, migration, demographic change, and economic uncertainties. The aim is to inspire scholarly interest in such challenges beyond mere cooperation at the European level, and to promote collective supranational action on a global scale. The funding initiative targets mainly scholars in the humanities and the social sciences. Funding can be provided to support the constitution of interdisciplinary groups. It is a condition that, beside European scholars, the project involves researchers from at least one further region of the world. Deadline pre-proposal September 1.

Naturvårdsverket - öppna utlysningar
Förvaltning av ekosystem i ett föränderligt klimat
Med denna utlysning vill Naturvårdsverket och Havs- och vattenmyndigheten finansiera ett syntesarbete som sammanfattar och analyserar hur förvaltningen av biologisk mångfald och ekosystem bör anpassas för att förebygga negativa effekter till följd av klimatförändringar.
Miljölagstiftningen som styrmedel
Med denna utlysning vill Naturvårdsverket och Havs- och vattenmyndigheten stödja forskning som ska öka kunskaperna om hur miljölagstiftningen fungerar som styrmedel mot miljömålen
Ragnar Söderberg project in economic sciences
This call is addressed to junior researchers with a PhD that have innovative ideas, proven scientific excellence and high ambitions to develop economic sciences. The Ragnar Söderberg Foundation intends to fund small innovative research environments and is therefore announcing grants for 3–5 researchers that are cooperating in a collaborative project. The principal investigator should have a PhD in Economics or Business Administration, but additional team members may come from other disciplines. The researchers can be active at the same or at different universities.
There is no open call but more information can be found here.
Marie SkŁodowska-Curie European Joint Doctorates (EJD)
EJDs have the objective of promoting international, intersectoral and multi/inter-disciplinary collaboration in doctoral-level training in Europe through the creation of joint doctoral programmes, leading to the delivery of joint, double or multiple doctoral degrees. They are composed of at least three beneficiaries established in different Member States or Associated Countries that are entitled to deliver doctoral degrees.

Advanced Study Group 2017-18 and Themes 2017-18 Pufendorf (LU)
An Advanced Study Group (ASG) can be described as a “mini-Theme” – a group of researchers from at least three faculties addressing a common research problem and a theme is a project that revolves around one or more current research issues, which require perspectives from multiple disciplines at the same time in order to find solutions and answers.
Last day to apply is in January 2017 http://www.pi.lu.se/en/
ERC Consolidator grant
