Terms and conditions for our funding

To receive funding from us, you need to follow our general terms and conditions.

Our general terms and conditions contain details on project agreements, reporting a project and what happens if you don't follow the conditions. These terms and conditions always apply, unless special clauses have been stipulated in your funding decision or the individual call.

You can find the conditions in the funding decision you receive from us, as well as on our website.

Please note that we have translated our terms and conditions from Swedish. If there are differences between the English and Swedish versions, the Swedish version applies.

Help to understand our terms and conditions

We want to make it easier for you to understand and meet our terms and conditions, so we've produced guides for some of our conditions. Some of these guides are currently only available in Swedish.

Participant's approval

All the participants in your project have to complete and submit the form for participant's approval. By completing this form, you commit to carry out the project as described in your application, following our terms and conditions.

Eligible costs

The costs that you can receive funding for are called 'eligible costs'. In our guide, we explain what costs you're able to ask us to cover, and how they're calculated and accounted for.

Access rights

With access rights we mean licenses and user rights to a participant's results or background in a project. In our guide we clarify our conditions on access rights.

Project agreement

In projects where there's more than one participant, you need to set up a project agreement between the participants in the project. In our agreement guide, we describe what you should keep in mind when creating a project agreement.
