With RJ Sabbatical, researchers can receive funding to complete research already at an advanced stage and to write syntheses.
With an RJ Sabbatical grant, senior lecturers and professors can spend six to twelve months completing research that is already at an advanced stage and write syntheses. Grants include support for a stay abroad, thus promoting international ties for Swedish research and education.
The initiative is a pilot project consisting of five calls for proposals.
The grant is intended to enable grantees to conduct research to the full extent of their employment. An RJ Sabbatical grant should, during the period funded by RJ, include a research stay abroad in a research environment relevant for the project. The stay is to be at least one month, if the application is for a period longer than six months. When the application is for a period of up to six months, a stay abroad isn't mandatory but it is considered positive to include a well-thought out plan for a research stay abroad.
RJ Sabbatical is intended for use in research and edition projects. The research period must be devoted to completing ongoing research projects that have reached an advanced stage or to writing major works or syntheses likely to be regarded as representing significant scholarship. Grants may be for applications that will result in monographs or in journal articles.
