Research mobility programs

The programs of the French Embassy / French Institute in Sweden aim to increase scientific and academic cooperation between France and Sweden by giving people active in research the opportunity to develop their professional network in the other country or to strengthen Franco-Swedish research cooperation. The programs are open to any person active in research, whatever their field of research, in the exact sciences as well as in the humanities or social sciences. Scholarships cover travel and living expenses, but not salaries or research equipment. Several programs are available.
