The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) announces the flagship program “Future Research Leaders”. The purpose of the program is to support young researchers with the potential to become the leaders of the future in academic and / or industrial research. Johan Nilsson, Research Secretary at SSF, will present the call and answer questions.

For the eighth time, SSF is investing in the flagship program “Future Research Leaders” (FFL-8). Since the start in 2000, around 140 successful researchers have participated in the program. Another 16 young researchers are now given the opportunity to participate. During a five-year period, the participants receive a grant of SEK 15 million each and will at the same time receive a solid leadership training.

The program is intended to be an outstanding vehicle for supporting and promoting young scholars who have the aptitude to become future leaders of academic and/or industrial research in Sweden. The Foundation’s vision of a future research leader is a young individual of the highest scientific and pedagogical standing who, in addition, displays a potential for leadership and management. This researcher shows an ambition to implement research results and is prepared at a later stage of the career to take responsibility for complete academic environment and constellations larger than her/his own research group. Applicants must have obtained their Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree within the period 1 January 2015 – 31 December 2017, according to the date on the PhD Diploma. 

According to its statutes, SSF supports research in the sciences, engineering and medicine, promoting the development of strong research environments of the highest international standards and enhancing Sweden’s future competitiveness. The researcher who applies must work full time at a Swedish university / college or research institute. The grant is primarily intended for building a research group at a research organisation chosen by the grantee.

The webinar will be held in English.
