• Stays abroad must be a part of RJ Sabbatical. RJ prefers for sabbaticals to be divided into maximum of two periods. One of these periods is to be of at least 30 consecutive days.
  • The applicant is responsible for the planning and all practical arrangements for the time abroad (insurance, accommodation, visa and the like). This is done in consultation with the researcher’s own HEI and the foreign host institution.
  • The applicant is responsible for ensuring that the research is compatible with the ethical guidelines established by the Swedish Research Council and that ethical review is carried out where necessary.
  • Researchers applying for RJ Sabbatical must be permanently employed at a Swedish higher education institution.
  • Final reports for any previous research grants from RJ must have been submitted by the application date.
  • Only one RJ Sabbatical application may be submitted per application occasion.
  • Only one applicant may be included per application.
  • Researchers with RJ Sabbatical grants are required to conduct research for the entire time covered by their employment. Exceptions are only possible for supervision of PhD students, up to a maximum of 10 per cent of full-time employment and no more than the amount committed to at the start of the RJ Sabbatical. The supervision of PhD students is not funded by RJ.
  • RJ Sabbatical grants may never cover more than the scope of the applicant’s position.
  • Researchers who are drawing retirement pension or will start drawing one during the period covered by the funding may not apply for an RJ Sabbatical grant.
