Checklist applying for funding

To make the process effective and easy for both researchers and administrators, and to make sure you don´t miss any important parts, please use the checklist below.

Get an approval from the head of the department before deadline

All applications where CEC is taking part have to be approved by the head of the department Per Persson. This is the case if (1) a researcher at CEC is main or co-applicant, (2) the application involves funding of positions at CEC. This is the case whether the application involves co-funding or not.

To get an approval

Send a short description by mail to the CEC Research Coordinator Marianne Hall at least a week before deadline including:

  • Preliminary title
  • Applicants
  • Will you be using Biology’s lab? (see also below for further instructions)
  • Funder and call (a link is highly appriciated)
  • Amount asked for (approximately)
  • Are you planning for a PhD-student in the project?
  • Is co-funding required?
  • Names of any named person expected to achieve salary or any positions expected to be created (e.g. post-doc)

E-mail to: Marianne [dot] hall [at] cec [dot] lu [dot] se

If you intend to use Biology’s lab in your project

The cost to use the lab is included in the CEC overhead cost (as of January 1, 2021), no extra budget calculation is needed. However – you must contact the person in charge of the lab at Biology and check that you can use the lab. This must be done before you send in your application to the funder. If you get funded (congratulations!), an agreement between CEC and Biology has to be signed so that we can keep track of how many researchers are using the lab. Contact the CEC Research Coordinator to get support with this.

To get an approval

Contact the person in charge of the lab as soon as you know you will want to use the lab. Include the information in the list above sent to the CEC Research Coordinator.

Get the fullkostnadskalkyl (full cost application) approved and signed by the controller/economist and the head of department before deadline

The “fullkostnadskalkyl” of all applications where CEC is taking part have to be reviewed and approved by the economist. This is the case if (1) a researcher at CEC is main or co-applicant, (2) the application involves funding of positions at CEC. This is the case whether the application involves co-funding or not. 

To get an approval

E-mail to: Eva [dot] stengard [at] cec [dot] lu [dot] se

The final approval will often be that the head of department signs in Prisma (e.g. for FORMAS and VR), but by following the above guidelines, you avoid unnecessary hassle. If the application is to be submitted via Prisma, it is a very good idea to start filling out the on-line application early, as it takes time. Make sure the CVs of all named participating researchers are avalible (and up-to-date) in Prisma. 

You are warmly welcome to contact the CEC Research Coordinator Marianne Hall for support during the writing of your application.
