Call for applications for funding for infrastructure investments within the Faculty of Medicine and regulations for processing applications - please see information below.
For a number of years, the national conditions for funding research infrastructure have meant that much of it must be funded by individual higher education institutions and thereby often within the framework of faculty budgets. Researchers at the Faculties of Medicine, Science and Engineering (MSE) are annually offered the opportunity to apply for infrastructure funding from the faculties. In 2019, as in previous years, the processing of applications and the allocation of infrastructure funding will be coordinated between the three faculties. Therefore, identical application forms are to be used to apply for infrastructure funding from the faculties of Science, Medicine and Engineering as well as from LU’s central administration as part of efforts to increase coordination and clarity on the principles for the allocation of funding. The aim is to facilitate the process both for the researchers applying and for the assessors. The content of the applications and the assessment criteria are largely identical between the three MSE faculties, but this document highlights important differences.
For the current round of applications, SEK 9 million has been set aside by the Faculty of Medicine, SEK 10 million by the Faculty of Engineering and SEK 20 million by the Faculty of Science, for infrastructure investments. The Faculty of Medicine hereby calls for applications for infrastructure funding as follows:
Purpose and criteria
The funding is primarily destined to support investment in research infrastructure that:
- has the potential to lead to high quality science
- is made up of new infrastructure or increases accessibility of existing infrastructure for researchers at LU
- is relevant to many users and has a transparent accessibility policy for the faculty’s researchers
- is strategically important to the Faculty of Medicine
Detailed instructions about how the actual application is to be composed are found in the file “Call for applications for funding for infrastructure investments within the Faculty of Medicine and regulations for processing applications” (see below). Applications are to be written in English and the application form should be used (see below).
All parts of the application are to be compiled into a digitally searchable PDF document (not a folder), and sent to Birgitta.Larsson@med.lu.se.
Applications must have been received by Monday 15 April 2019 at the latest.
Any questions concerning the application are primarily to be addressed to the Faculty of Medicine: infrastructure coordinator Kajsa M. Paulsson, firstname.lastname@example.org, 046 222 41 67
