RA3 Call for proposals for seed money/pilot projects during 2018

Aim of the call: All projects with a research purpose related to the Bolin Centre RA3 theme of Hydrology, Cryosphere and Climate. Note that this theme includes all aspects of the cryosphere and terrestrial hydrology domains, including contaminants and other substances transported by surface and subsurface waters, as long as there is a clear climate relevance.

Potential projects can include, for example, fieldwork, sampling, analyses, equipment, research assistants (i.e., costs to hire a student for a limited period of time), conferences, workshops, or dedicated time for research staff. The funds can also go towards co-funding and reinforcing projects funded by other RAs if added value and RA3 relevance can be clearly demonstrated.

Available funding: The total budget of the call is approximately 300,000 SEK. The budget for proposed projects should be for no more than 100,000 SEK. For salaries, overhead costs at the rate that applies at the respective Bolin institution must be included in the budget.

Eligible applicants: The main applicant should be a member of RA3 and be employed at SU, KTH or SMHI.

Format of proposals: The proposal should fit within maximum of 2 pages and should contain a project background and motivation, a description of relevance for RA3, a project plan, and a budget. No CV:s or publication lists are to be submitted.

Evaluation: Proposals will be evaluated based on (1) scientific quality, (2) relevance to the scope of RA3 and (3) effort to build new collaborations within the Bolin centre. The applications will be evaluated by the RA leaders.

Submission: Send proposals as a single pdf file to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at the latest on April 30, 2018. Decisions will be announced latest by May 20.
