Uppsala University is arranging a Grants Day at the University Main Building, lecture hall X. Researchers from all fields are welcome to meet representatives from Swedish funding agencies.

Presentations will focus on criteria in evaluation, upcoming calls and, of course, inspiration. During meal breaks, the agency representatives will present information, and there will be opportunities for everyone to mingle and discuss research and calls. The day will conclude with drinks. We are hoping this will be an enjoyable, informative day full of networking. The programme will be held in English.
