17 november - Annual funding day 2022

Welcome to the very first SLU Annual Funding Day, during which we will provide an overview of different types of funding opportunities and inspiration for pursuing them.

The event, which will be held on the Ultuna campus this year, is designed primarily for researchers at all levels, but all employees at SLU are welcome. Those who cannot participate on site can join via our web broadcast.

The organisers of the funding day are the Grants office, the Fundraising unit and SLU Holding. In different but complementary ways, we support SLU researchers with identifying and applying for external funding, as well as for enhancing the impact of their research.

About the organisers

Grants Office: Provide information and advice on scientific as well as financial and administrative aspects of external funding from national and international (primarily EU) funders.

Fundraising: We give advice and support with donations, philanthropy and collaboration – i.e. different kinds of grants from individuals, foundations, organizations and companies.

SLU Holding: We help enhance the societal impact of SLU research by helping researchers to develop new processes, services or products.
