CNDS offer Interdisciplinary Grants to encourage research activities that go beyond disciplinary boundaries, and expand research networks. Examples include funding of small research projects within natural hazards and disaster science involving two or more early career scientists from different disciplines; an extended visit to a different research environment to learn new methods and/or develop interdisciplinary research ideas; organizing cross-, multi- or interdisciplinary workshops and seminars, or attending PhD courses that are outside of her/his/their own discipline to broaden research scope. While presentations of interdisciplinary work at conferences or workshops will also be considered, they will not be prioritised for funding.

The grants can be applied for until 28 February 2023 (total funds available for this year’s call is 150,000 SEK including 40% OH). Acquired funding has to be spent before 31 December 2023.

The requirements for attaining the grant is that the proposed activities involve research tasks, analytical methods, and/or other efforts spanning across disciplines on a topic related to natural hazards and disaster science. Disciplines that are currently not represented within CNDS (e.g., public health, economics, and cognitive sciences) can also be covered.

 Who can apply?

CNDS Interdisciplinary Grants are open for applications from early career scientists (PhD students and postdocs) from any department of CNDS partnering universities, i.e. Uppsala University, Karlstad University and Swedish Defence University.

How to apply?

Applications should be a maximum of two pages, including the proposal and description of the activity, a statement of the interdisciplinary nature of the proposal and how the proposed activity will benefit your research, and budget (including OH) with budget motivation, and period. In addition, applications must also include 1-page resumes of all applicants.


Applications for CNDS Interdisciplinary Grants are reviewed and decided by the CNDS Management Group. Potential for interdisciplinary and feasibility of the proposed activity are the main evaluation criteria. The management group can suggest merging applications.
