Who can apply:

The SFVE-A program is open to researchers established in France or Sweden without nationality requirement.

This program is intended for researchers with a PHD in order to:

  • Organize a scientific workshop in France or Sweden in order to prepare large-scale projects (bilateral, regional or European).
  • Carry out an academic or scientific visit in France or Sweden.

This program is also intended for PHD students who want to:

  • Complete a double degree PHD between a French and a Swedish institution.
  • Apply for the “European doctorate” label.


The period of the year during which the mobility takes place, and its duration depends on the researcher’s project.


The exact destination in France or Sweden depends on the university, the research laboratories and the people with whom the researcher plans to work. The accomodation’s choice is left at the researcher’s will.

About the grant:

  • The grant is calculated on a project-by-project basis.
  • The grant is a contribution to travel and accommodation expenses. Maximum grant is 1500€.
