SSEESS Research Links




SSEESS Research Links is a grant aiming to enhance the collaboration between scientists affiliated with a Swedish research institute and scientists from developing countries who together conduct research on Global Environmental Change (GEC). This grant is expected to help such North–South collaborations to have a long legacy.

The focus areas of SSEESS Research Links can differ from year to year. When applying for a grant, therefore, make sure that you fulfil the criteria for that year.
