Research & Funding


Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) supports research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Riksbankens Jubileumsfond's mission is to give Swedish research within the foundation's areas of focus the capacity to attain international prominence.

RJ works along two lines. First, it funds high-quality applications from the researchers themselves. There are currently forms of support designed both for individual researchers and for smaller and larger groups: RJ Programmes, RJ Projects, RJ Infrastructure for Research and RJ Research Initiation. RJ announces grants for RJ Programmes, RJ Projects and RJ Infrastructure for Research once a year, but researchers can apply for funding for RJ Research Initiation – usually conferences and academic networks – throughout the year.

RJ also has targeted initiatives to develop and strengthen Swedish research in the humanities and social sciences. Inspiration for such targeted initiatives can come from many sources, such as evaluations of ongoing activities, conferences, review panels or the board.
