The mission of SSF is to fund research of the highest quality that contributes to Sweden’s competitiveness and at the same time promote mobility both internationally, nationally and between universities, institutes and companies.

SSF has therefore set aside SEK 10 million for the investment in strategic mobility over a two-year period. Each grant within the program covers the salary of a researcher or an equivalent person during a four to twelve month exchange service in a sector other than that in which the person is active. During the stay, the guest researcher must conduct strategic research in one of the  prioritized areas of the foundation, which is science, technology and medicine.

Mobility within Sweden is a priority, but the exchange can also take place with a home organization / host in another country if the connection to Sweden is strong enough from a strategic Swedish perspective. The purpose of the program is to increase personal mobility, knowledge transfer and cross-fertilization between sectors.
