LU receives grants for 40 EU projects

It has been a good summer for LU. The call for applications in the spring for the EU’s framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon Europe, has resulted in approved grants for 40 new projects.

The success has been on a broad front, involving researchers from seven of our faculties. The approved projects are as follows:

4 ERC Starting Grants
1 ERC Proof of Concept
22 collaborative projects concerning global challenges, of which 2 are coordinated from LU
3 EIC Pathfinder (European Innovation Area)
2 MSCA Staff Exchange (researcher mobility)
8 research infrastructure projects

More details about the University’s projects will be published later in the autumn when the contracts are signed.

Horizon Europe started in 2021 and including the summer’s new allocations, the University now has a total of 157 approved projects. This corresponds to funding of EUR 106 million. This puts us in first place among Swedish higher education institutions and in 11th place among all the participating European and international HEIs. This means a rise from 23rd place in the previous framework programme, Horizon 2020.

Research Services, a part of the Research, Collaboration and Innovation Division, has specific responsibility for the EU’s framework programme and provides support and assistance to those who wish to apply for project funding or participate in other ways in Horizon Europe.
