Plan your project
When planning your project and proposal, make sure to start in time. Several aspects need to be thoroughly considered, such as impact, external collaborations, co-funding and potential ethical reviews. Here we guide you through these steps. If you have questions or need further advice you are welcome to contact Research Support when planning your project.
Planning to apply to the Wallenberg Foundations, the EU or American funding agencies?
These funders have particular regulations that you and the university must follow when you apply for and/or receive grants from them. Read more below about what applies to each funder, and make sure to contact Research Support. Research Support also offers extra help in the application process for these funders.
Check with your economy administrator or head of department if your department or faculty provides financial support for the co-financing of projects.
NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE
Here you can find information about available university infrastructures that could be beneficial for your research project.
– other matters that are important to consider
Already when designing your project, it is a good idea to think about the need for data management and start planning for this. The University provides support for producing data management plans, as well as resources and support for storing and analysing research data.
You should apply good research practice in all stages of a project. We advise you to consider this when you plan your work. In addition, you need to consider whether your project requires ethical reviews for research concerning humans or animal experiments. Here you can find information on ethical reviews, personal data (GDPR), handling of genetic resources and traditional knowledge (the Nagoya protocol), and tools to assess good research practice and research misconduct. Read more about what applies in research funded by federal American funders here.
Your project may benefit from the university-wide international collaboration networks and regional centres in which Uppsala University participates. These provide exchanges for researchers and teachers, symposia and conferences, evaluation and benchmarking, course syllabus development and common projects.
Including sex- and gender dimensions in research often improve the quality of research, and several large funding agencies now require inclusion of these dimensions when relevant. We have here compiled important information that will help you decide whether it is relevant and beneficial to include these dimensions in your research.
Uppsala University is obliged to have the requested permits in place, if the University exports, transfers or mediates controlled items with dual-use. Dual-use items include “items, including software and technology, produced for civil use that may also be used in the production of weapons of mass destruction or military equipment.” To export (physically or electronically) a dual-use item out of the EU you will need export authorization.
