Excellent research

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg within many disciplines contribute to the solution of societal problems. In order to provide our researchers with the best possible conditions and to support excellent science, one important goal is to increase our international research funding.

The University of Gothenburg’s Vice-Chancellor provides co-financing for the researchers who receive funding from the following particularly strategic research programmes: ERC, Wallenberg Academy Fellows, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Project, Wallenberg Scholars, the RJ programme and Pro Futura. Below, we present some of the researchers at the University of Gothenburg who have received strategic funding.

Wallenberg Academy Fellows

The Foundations grant funding to excellent researchers and research projects beneficial to Sweden.

Wallenberg Clinical Scholar

The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation is investing almost SEK 600 million over a ten-year period in the Wallenberg Clinical Scholars programme. Here are the researchers at the University of Gothenburg who have so far received this investment.

Wallenberg Scholars

The Wallenberg Scholars programme supports some of the most successful senior researchers at Swedish universities. The grant runs for five years with an opportunity to extend it by another five years. There are currently 79 active Wallenberg Scholars, 7 of whom are based at the University of Gothenburg.
