The Board of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts has decided to continue the investment in incentive grants to teachers and researchers, with the aim of building strong research environments with room for research and development in pedagogy, as well as in fine, performing or creative arts.

Incentive Grants for teachers and researchers

The Research and Research Education Board (FFU Board) decided on January 23, 2024, about a new application period for incentive grants. The applocation period opens January 26 and the deadline to apply is February 26.

Those employed within the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts as postdocs, lecturers, senior lecturers or professors (who include a junior researcher in the application) can apply for an incentive grant. Applications can be awarded a maximum of SEK 100,000.

A previously granted project must be completed before you can apply again. Guidelines for applying for incentive grants can be found under "Documents" here on the right. Read these carefully before writing your application. Your application must be anchored with, and signed by, your immediate manager. Send your application via email to annika [dot] westberg [at] kanslik [dot] lu [dot] se (annika[dot]westberg[at]kanslik[dot]lu[dot]se) 
The FFU Boards decides on the applications in a meting March 26.

The aim is to encourage and stimulate work for a limited and allocated time with, for example:

•    research grant applications,
•    completion of articles,
•    research and development in teaching and the fine, performing or creative arts,
•    scientific, educational and/or artistic material that can be used as a basis for promotion,
•    other types of qualification that strengthen the scientific and artistic skills of researchers and teachers.

Upon completion of the work/project, a brief report (approximately 1-2 pages) must be submitted to the FFU Board describing how the funds were used and the results of the project/work. The project's results must also be presented publicly at a time decided by the FFU Board.
