Since 2000, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) has increasingly concentrated its research grants on PhD graduate researchers only.
The main areas in which research is funded by RJ are Social Sciences and Humanities. Medical research on ageing and childhood diseases is supported by means of the two Erik Rönnberg Donations, which RJ administers.
Grants for programmes, projects and infrastructure are announced once a year in coordinated application calls. Grants for research initiation, usually in the form of conferences and academic networks, may be applied for at any time. In addition, RJ provides focused inputs in research areas identified primarily by the foundation's 'sector committees'. The research system is supported by thematic, proactive inputs to supplement the researcher-initiated projects.
