RJ Projects are well-defined research assignments in the social sciences and humanities carried out by groups of individual researchers and by small research groups with connections to Sweden.
This means that it is a requirement that researchers active in Sweden (formally affiliated to a Swedish research unit) participate in the research or that a Swedish research institute is actively involved. This also means that RJ allows the participation of foreign researchers based abroad. The researchers are free to define their own research tasks. RJ Projects are approved for up to three years.
