Call for increased collaboration between Food Science Sweden partners 2018

Application deadline: June 10, 2018

FSS is announcing a call for increased collaboration between Food Science Sweden partners. Researchers from FSS member organisations are welcome to apply and preference will be given to projects involving two or more FSS partner organisations. 

The project topic should fall within food science and specifically within the active research areas of FSS. Other aspects that will be evaluated include 1) the novelty of the proposal, 2) the potentiality of the project to lead to further funding and 3) distribution of young and senior researchers.

The total sum to be applied for is up to 100 kSEK. The grant covers services, travel, fee for instrument use etc. but it cannot be used to cover salaries or stipends. All applications will be evaluated by the FSS-steering group.
