The Swedish Research Council and Vinnova have started a collaboration with the American research financier National Science Foundation (NSF). Through the collaboration, researchers in Sweden can apply for funding to speed up the process from basic research to application. the offer for funding opens on May 9.

National Science Foundation has been running the Convergence Accelerator Program (CAP) research program for a few years now, which aims to speed up the process from basic research to applied research. In order for researchers in Sweden to also have the opportunity to apply for funding within the program, the Swedish Research Council and Vinnova are now jointly entering into a collaboration with NSF.

The grant offer that is currently available for researchers in Sweden is about different types of applications for chemical sensing (Real-World Chemical Sensing Application). To be able to take part in the offer, the researchers must be part of a team with researchers in the USA.

The first part of the application process is open between 9 May and 11 July. During this time, the research groups that want to participate must send a so-called letter of intent, i.e. a declaration of intent, to NSF and to Vinnova. In July the call for proposals opens at NSF. The last application date is August 22.

More information about the research program is available on the NSF website
