Forte announces SEK 200 million for research on challenges in working life. The research shall contribute to addressing the challenges of working life by generating and disseminating new knowledge. The call for proposals is part of the national research programme on working life.

There are major changes and challenges facing today’s working life. Forte has prioritised challenges where the need for knowledge is great and more research is needed. Applications within this call are to focus on one or several of the following challenges:

  • Adapting working life to demographic changes and creating conditions for sustainable labour force participation
  • Increasing the inclusion of under-represented groups in the labour market, with a focus on the workplace and the role of employers
  • Improving the prerequisites and conditions for organising and undertaking work considering different forms of employment
  • Reducing the occurrence of intimidation, violence and harassment in the workplace
  • Read more about the challenges in the attached document “descriptions of prioritised challenges”.

Within this call for proposals, it is possible to apply for three different types of grants: programme grant, project grant and network grant. The same project leader (main applicant) may either submit an application for a programme grant or an application for a project grant. It is possible to also apply for a network grant.
