KI Internal Prioritisation Process for External Swedish Funding
A number of Swedish sponsors require a signature and letter of support from the President of KI to be included as part of the application. KI and the Grants Office have therefore set up an internal prioritisation process to facilitate this application process.
Information of the calls is disseminated by the Grants Office by email to the heads of department, through publication on the KI Grants Office website, and through the Grants Office newsletter.
Each call has one or two internal deadlines in the application process. A signature from the head of the department is required, generally confirming that the department is aware of the sponsor's terms and conditions and supports the contents of the application. Please use the form for internal prioritisation which is provided with the information about the specific call.
