Grants and Applications

Region Skåne has an important role to play in supporting and initiating research. The various research funds we allocate are an important source of support.

Regional Research Support

Region Skåne has special funds set aside for research financed by county councils in its budget. The funds are co-financed by the Southern Health Care Region, which includes Regions Skåne, Halland and Kronoberg, as well as Blekinge County Council.

Research funding calls are open in May every other year. The funding consists of support for PhD studies and funds for research projects, both for two-year periods. Applications are made online.

ALF Funds

ALF stands for the Medical Training and Research Agreement (Avtal om Läkarutbildning och Forskning), and is a national agreement between the Swedish government and the seven county councils with university hospitals. There are ALF funds set aside for clinical research that can be applied for annually.
