Thank you for your interest in the French Institute in Sweden and the mobility programmes!

What is the FRÖ programme?
The FRÖ programme aims to promote the cooperation between Swedish and French researchers by giving the possibility to have an experience in France.

The programme intends to establish new collaborations, or to strengthen existing collaborations, for research, education or training (European projects, European universities alliances, Erasmus +, Erasmus Mundus or Eureka/Eureka programs, setting up double degrees, prepare a sabbatical stay…)

Who can apply?
All researchers established in Sweden, regardless of their nationality, may apply to this programme. Researchers from both public and private labs are welcome to apply.

A specific attention will be given to the application of researchers within the framework of an alliance of European university with both a French and a Swedish partner institution.

How much is the grant?
The FRÖ grant is between € 600 and € 1500 and will help to cover economy class travel and the accommodation in France.

When and how to apply?
The call for applications is open until the end of August 2022, for a mobility before the 10th of November, 2022.
The call for applications can be closed before the deadline if the budget ceiling is reached.
