Research Infrastructure

Here you find information on research infrastructure grants approved by the Faculty of Medicine dating back from 2018.

The Council for Research Infrastructure handles the call and distribution of research infrastructure funding. The Strategic Board for Research (FoN) makes the decision on the allocation of infrastructure grants.

The Faculty of Medicine opens an annual call for proposals for research infrastructure funding. Keep an eye out in the Faculty weekly News letter and under Announcements.
