Pro Futura is a post-doctoral programme for leading research providing particularly promising young researchers with an extended period of financing for independent research.
The programme is a collaborative effort with SCAS (The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study), one of Europe's leading institutes for advanced studies.
In the past few years, a total of 32 researchers have been admitted after a national nomination and selection procedure. They are given scope for carrying out five to seven years' research under highly favourable conditions. These researchers spend a year at SCAS and at least one year abroad, at one of the internationally leading institutes for advanced study or equivalent cutting-edge research environments.
