Over five years, the participants will receive a grant of SEK 15 million each and undergo solid leadership training. The programme aims to give newly established researchers with the highest scientific and pedagogical competence the opportunity to develop as research leaders. The individuals should have the ambition to implement research results in society outside academia and, at a later stage of their career, shoulder responsibility for a constellation that is significantly larger than their research group.
