The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat's provides operational support for researchers active in Sweden to collect data and samples in the Arctic and Antarctic. Here you will find information about our current calls for proposals.
Our operational support is provided to make it easier for researchers active in Sweden to collect data and samples in the Arctic and Antarctic. The last day to apply is December 3, 2021.
Through the Support to minor extent (SiMO) we offer limited logistic/operational support to carry out projects or parts of projects. Apply no later than two months before the fieldwork begins.
With regard to our support at program level, the Polar Research Secretariat has begun working with research themes that will encourage collaboration between different research disciplines. This is done through open announcements on research topics (more information here). Currently, two themes and a project have been selected for the long-term planning of our operational support. At the end of 2021, we plan to open two calls for projects linked to an expedition in 2023 (ARTofMELT, Eurasian Arctic C4) and at the end of 2022, we plan to open a call for projects linked to an expedition 2024 (GEOEO).
