Excellensprogrammet för hållbar utveckling ger nio nya postdoktoranställningar

Två forskningsprojekt med sammanlagt nio postdoktorer får totalt 32,7 miljoner kronor i den andra omgången av Lunds universitets forskningsprogram för excellens med fokus på Agenda 2030 och hållbar utveckling.

Lunds universitet beslutade i mars 2021 att inrätta ett forskningsprogram för tvärvetenskapliga projekt med fokus på Agenda 2030 och hållbar utveckling och att avsätta sammanlagt 100 miljoner kronor för åren 2022–2025. Syftet med programmet är att universitetet ska skapa internationellt ledande miljöer som kan attrahera finansiering från kommande satsningar på hållbar utveckling. Det gäller både nationella anslag från satsningar i forskningspropositionen men särskilt från EU:s ramprogram Horisont Europa.

Projekten som beviljats anslag i den andra omgången är nedanstående. Totalt får de tillsammans 32,7 miljoner kronor under tre år.


Projektet samlar forskning från sex fakulteter vid Lunds universitet. Detta breda samarbete ska underlätta framtagandet av en plan för vattenpolicy med mål att lösa ohållbar vattenförbrukning. Denna plan ska kunna tillämpas på svensk såväl som global nivå. Säker och hållbar vattenförvaltning är ett globalt behov och en hörnsten inom FN:s hållbarhetsmål.

Sex postdoktorer från LTH, Juridiska fakulteten, Naturvetenskapliga fakulteten, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, Ekonomihögskolan och Humanistiska och teologiska fakulteterna ingår i projektet.

Huvudsökande: Kenneth M Persson, LTH

Medsökande: Britta Sjöstedt, J; Charlotte Sparrebom, N; Lea Fünfschilling, S; Jonas Nordström, EHL; Dan-Erik Andersson, HT

Circular Economy: Multi-level value chain and policy dynamics for accelerating sustainability transformations

Projektet ska undersöka skiftet från globala värdekedjor till cirkulära leveranskedjor, vilka är av stor vikt eftersom globala värdekedjor står för hälften av världens handel. Projektet kommer att belysa spänningar mellan linjära och cirkulära affärsmodeller, mellan toppstyrda företag och inkluderande lokala botten-uppinitiativ och mellan fokus på avreglering och på styrformer som tar miljö- och social hänsyn.

I projektet ingår tre postdoktorer från Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, LTH och Ekonomihögskolan.

Huvudsökande: Markus Grillitsch, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten

Medsökande: Fredrik Nilsson, S; Sylvia Schwaag Serger, EHL

Welcome to a seminar for PhD supervisors about ethics in research and supervision

Two women talking

As a researcher, it is a privilege to be able to delve into both theory and empirical evidence and freely define research aims and questions. This means great opportunities to develop and contribute to research but also comes with the responsibility to follow research ethics principles and good research practice.

In this seminar you will learn about the most important things about the ethical review process (why it exists and what it requires), how different legal frameworks and regulations relate to each other and what good research practice means. You will also learn what researchers need to know about ethics in the context of online research, which is becoming increasingly relevant. There will be three expert talks and ample time for you to ask question to the speakers.

Further information

The seminar will be held in English. It is part of the LU-wide initiative “Professionalisation of the supervisor role” for training of research supervisors.

Time: 28 mars 2023 14:15 to 16:30

Place: LUSEM/Lund University School of Economics and Management, EC1: The Crafoord hall. Coffee and tea will be served

SIGN UP HERE (Last day to sign up 22 March.)

How to get EU funding for your innovative idea

European Innovation Council, Pathfinder

The funding program from the European Innovation Fund (EIC) provides funding for research and develop of emerging breakthrough technologies. The different funding instruments are dedicated to different levels of technological readiness (TRL) of the research and development – EIC Pathfinder (TRL 1-4) and EIC Transition (TRL 4-6). Learn more about how the European commission defines TRL definition.

Both Pathfinder and Transition includes Open calls as well as Challenges.
Open, indicates a bottom-up approach, meaning any field of science, technology or application without predefined thematic priorities are welcome to apply.
Challenges indicates a top-down, challenge-driven approach, which aim to support proposals within a predefined thematic area and addressing specific objectives.

Topics and deadlines/cut-offs (dates need to be confirmed by call opening)
EIC PATHFINDER OPEN deadline: 7 March 2023
EIC PATHFINDER CHALLENGES deadline: 18 October 2023
• Clean and efficient cooling
• Architecture, Engineering and Construction digitalisation for a novel triad of design, fabrication, and materials
• Precision nutrition
• Responsible electronics
• In-space solar energy harvesting for innovative space applications

EIC TRANSITION OPEN cut-off dates: 12/4 2023; 27/9 2023
EIC TRANSITION CHALLENGES cut-off dates: 12/4 2023; 27/9 2023

  • Full scale Micro-Nano-Bio devices for medical and medical research applications
  • Environmental intelligence
  • Chip-scale optical frequency combs

News: results from all projects funded under Horizon 2020 or Horizon Europe, are eligible for EIC Transition Challenges.

Regarding the EIC Transition there are interesting news. A proposal to EIC Transition Open must build on results already achieved within an eligible project (e.g. EIC Pathfinder, H2020 FET-Open and Proactive), FET Flagships, ERC-PoC or EDF civil projects). The new thing is that results from all projects funded under Horizon 2020 or Horizon Europe, can apply for EIC Transition Challenges.

UK and Swiss Participation in Horizon Europe – Current state of play, and what it means for you

Höstfärg höstlöv palaestra

— Updated 20 December with information on the UK Financial Guarantee —

— Updated 6 December with information on the Swiss Financial Guarantee for 2023 —

United Kingdom

On 20 December 2022, the UK government announced an extension of their Horizon Europe financial safety net, extending their guarantee scheme to cover all Horizon Europe calls that close on or before 31 March 2023.

This scheme functions as a safety net for researchers based in the UK, allowing them to continue to apply to Horizon Europe calls during the ongoing negotiation process as the UK tries to formalize its association to the framework programme. In the event of continuing delays to in the association process, this scheme guarantees that eligible, successful applicants to Horizon Europe calls from the UK can receive the full value of their funding from the UK government.

While this scheme protects UK applicants, and helps them to participate in applications to Horizon Europe calls, it is important not to forget that the UK has currently not completed the association process. From the perspective of a researcher at Lund University, considering submitting a proposal together with a collaborator from the UK, you should keep in mind the following points:

  • Applications with UK partners are currently being assessed with the UK partner considered as a partner from an associated country.
  • However, if the UK has not completed its association process at the time of Grant Agreement Preparation (i.e. when you are informed that your proposal is successful), it will then be considered as a Third Country.
  • The eligibility of your proposal will then be re-assessed, and in the worst case, it could be found to be ineligible (depending on the rest of your consortium, and the specific requirements of the call). You could also be required to change the roles within your consortium in response to the change in status of your UK partner.

Research Services recommends that you do not submit a proposal whose eligibility is dependent on the UK associating to Horizon Europe. This will save you time and effort during Grant Agreement Preparation, and protect both you and your UK partners from the risk that the proposal may suddenly become ineligible.

We also advise caution when joining a proposal coordinated by a UK Host Institute. This makes the proposal especially vulnerable to the results of the UK’s association process, and we recommend discussing the situation in advance of application with us at Research Services. Beyond this, the UK government’s Horizon Europe guarantee scheme allows you and your UK partners to continue applying for European research grants in relative normality.

For further information, you can download guidance on the guarantee scheme from the UK Research and Innovation website, and the UK Research Office in Brussels maintains a helpful and concise factsheet on UK Participation in EU Programmes.


The situation is clearer for Swiss participation in Horizon Europe. Switzerland is a non-associated Third Country, and is counted as such for all eligibility considerations.

On 6 December, the Swiss government published the updated 2023 Financial Guarantee for Swiss participants in collaborative projects.

The Financial Guarantee covers funding for researchers and innovators based in Switzerland (including companies and SMEs) for their participation in eligible projects as associated partners from a non-associated third country. The funding will be directly paid by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) for all eligible 2023 calls of Horizon Europe and the Euratom programme. The funding is provided under the conditions that (i) the full project application is assessed as eligible for funding by the European Commission (EC) or by the agency commissioned for this purpose and (ii) the Swiss participant cannot request funding by the EC.

For further information, including an updated Q&A on Swiss participation in Horizon Europe and related programmes and initiatives, visit the website:

If you are looking for guidance or clarification on what any of this means for your specific research proposal, you are welcome to contact John Phillips ( at Research Services.

Financial support for writing your Horizon Europe application

Horizon Europe

There are a number of avenues available to you to receive funding and other support for the planning of your application to Horizon Europe.

Lund University provides both a planning grant and a coordination grant to researchers.

The planning grant funds up to 75 000 SEK to researchers at Lund University who are coordinating a collaborative proposal in Horizon Europe with a minimum of three participating organisations. It is awarded retrospectively after the proposal has been evaluated and can cover costs incurred during the application phase, such as travel and meeting costs. The grant presupposes that the researcher has been in contact with Research Services about their application during the application phase.

The coordination grant funds up to 200 000 SEK per year to researchers at Lund University who are coordinating a collaborative Horizon Europe project. The funds can be used to cover project costs not funded by the European Commission.

For further information about the planning and coordination grants, and to ensure whether your proposal is eligible for support, contact Karin Langborger ( or Carl Lagerqvist (


There are also planning grants available from other Swedish organisations, for various parts of the programme and various target groups. This information is generally available in Swedish.

MSCA4Ukraine – a new call for fellowships to displaced Ukrainian researchers


— — — Update: the call closes on 25 November — — —

Due to a large response, more than 400 applications towards the cut-off date of November 11, and the high likelihood that funding will be committed on the basis of applications received by the first cut-off date, the MSCA4Ukraine portal will close on Friday 25 November at midnight CET until further notice.

Please note that any applications received after the first cut-off date and before 25 November will only be evaluated if funding remains after the selection of applications received by the first cut-off date of 11 November. In the unlikely case that there is still funding available after the first two rounds of evaluation, the portal will reopen for new applications in early 2023.



The mobility programme Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions has opened a new call to allow displaced postdoctoral researchers and doctoral candidates in, or from Ukraine, to apply for fellowships to continue their work at academic and non-academic organisations in EU Member States and Associated Countries. The duration of the fellowships is between 6 and 24 months.  The scheme may also facilitate researchers’ reintegration in Ukraine if conditions for safe return are met. The fellowships are open to all disciplines of research and innovation.  

Short summary of the programme requirements: 


Ukrainian nationals, or stateless persons, or nationals from third countries other than Ukraine, with their primary residence in Ukraine on 24 February 2022. They could either have been displaced on or after 24 February 2022 or are ready to relocate from Ukraine.

Are postdoctoral researchers in possession of a doctoral degree by the time the fellowship is set to begin, or doctoral candidates, enrolled in a doctoral programme at a higher education institution in Ukraine.

Have the language skills required to successfully conduct their research activities at the envisaged host organization

Host organisations: academic or non-academic organisations in any EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country.

Applications: must be submitted by prospective host organisations

Duration:  a minimum of 6 months, up to a maximum of 24 months.

EU contribution: Fellowship rates will be in line with Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Networks and MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships.


From October 24 – The call is open for submissions via an online portal, which you find here:

Cut-off dates: The portal will remain open for applications until 25 November 2022. Fellowships will be offered starting in January 2023.
