29 October 2018

Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences) has announced its grant awards following this year’s funding calls. The calls invited proposals for three-year projects, longer programmes and infrastructure support in humanities and social sciences. Dr Yaffa Epstein of Uppsala University’s Faculty of Law is one of the grantees, with SEK 3,170,000 approved for her interdisciplinary environmental research.

Grants are being awarded for a total of 50 projects and three longer programmes, and eight to support infrastructure projects. Uppsala University is to receive grants for 14 projects and two infrastructure initiatives.

“For many years now, we’ve been devoting some three-quarters of the total budget for research funding to questions that the researchers themselves define with complete freedom. There’s a strength in the fact of the researchers’ curiosity being the primary driver in knowledge development,” says Göran Blomqvist, RJ’s Chief Executive, in a press release.
