Region Västra Götaland announces a forthcoming call for experienced researchers to submit research proposals for the Mobility for Regional Excellence 2020 programme (MoRE2020).

MoRE2020 will offer experienced researchers (in possession of a doctoral degree or at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience) new and exciting mobility experiences in internationally renowned research and innovation milieus. MoRE2020 has a focus on intersectorality and will require all fellows to collaborate with end-users in the public or private sector. MoRE2020 is for both incoming and outgoing researchers and aims to establish international collaboration of a high scientific quality between research and innovation milieus in Västra Götaland, Sweden and abroad.

The Third Call will be open from mid-June to October 2018 and is available for research proposals in one or more of the following areas: sustainable transport solutions, life science, green chemistry, marine environment and the maritime sector, urban development, material sciences, sustainable production, information and communication technologies, energy, textile/fashion/design, cultural and creative industry, food production/agriculture and forestry, and tourism.

The grant period is 12 months, under which time the fellow is to be employed by a research and innovation milieu in Västra Götaland. For each fellow, the MoRE2020 programme contributes 870 000 SEK to salary (including employers’ costs and contributions to social security), mobility allowance and OH costs.

Region Västra Götaland will host two informational meetings in preparation for the Third Call on 24 May 15:00-16:00 and 29 May 9:00-10:00. To register, send an email to
