Planning Grant for the Submission of a Major Research Application

The Swedish South Asian Studies Network (SASNET) invites Lund University researchers who are in the process of putting together and submitting a major national or international research application to apply for a planning grant.

About the grant

The grant amounts to a maximum value of 75 000 SEK (plus indirect costs) and it should be used to cover meeting costs and travel expenses that relate to the application.

Examples of such applications include the EU framework programme and programme applications to Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. In this round (i.e. September 2023), two applications will receive funding. 


The proposed research application should clearly address and attend to issues that relate to South Asia. While not required, it is considered an additional strength of the application if it names collaborators based at South Asian universities. 

The main applicant and designated project leader (or equivalent) should currently be employed by Lund University. The grant has to be used before October 2024.  

How to apply

The application should comprise the following documents: 

  • Project description, maximum three pages 
  • CV of the main applicant, listing research qualifications 
  • A plan outlining when and to what funding body (or bodies) that the research application will be submitted 
  • A list of proposed project members or collaborators 
  • Budget specifying how the planning grant will be used 
  • Approval signed by a Head of Department (or equivalent) 

The application period is closed. A new application deadline will be announced in early 2024.
