The funding amounts to a total of SEK 160 million, and in the first application round 15 positions have been filled.
The aim is for Sweden to recover its position at the international cutting edge by giving the best young researchers international experience and by recruiting young as well as more experienced mathematicians to Sweden.
The program includes several parts:
- Nomination of guest professors
- Postdoctoral Scholarship Program in Mathematics for researchers from outside Sweden
- Postdoctoral Scholarship Program in Mathematics for researchers with a Swedish doctors degree
In 2014 the first 15 grantees were selected; this year another 17 are announced.
