If you are planning a major project proposal for external research funding, please contact the Research Support Office regarding text analysis, structure to the proposal, and requirements from research funding agencies.

Analysing a call text

RSO can help you to analyse a call text and background information to find out the intention and expectations of the call.

Providing structure to a proposal

We can help you formulate your proposal in a structured way that meets the criteria of the funding agencies and the evaluators.

Criteria and requirements of research funding agencies

We offer support in reading your draft proposal and providing feedback on how well it meets the criteria and requirements specified by a particular external funding agency. 

Issues and requirements related to applications

We offer support on addressing specific issues or requirements that the funding agency has stated as vital to the project proposal, e.g., research ethics, gender, sustainability development goals, open access, or export control.

Meet a research advisor

You are always welcome to contact us for questions about research funding applications and to book a meeting with one of our research advisors . Remember, the sooner before the deadline of the call you contact us, the better support we can provide for a successful proposal.

If you have questions relating to budgets, please contact the financial officer at your school or department.

RSO has put together a guide (in Swedish) to the various research funder's general terms and conditions regarding cost coverage, indirect costs (OH), and who is the authorised signatory at KTH of funding agreements for various funders.
