Nominations and Selections

Since 1999 Swedish universities have been invited to nominate their most promising researchers for the
Pro Futura Scientia Programme. In recent years, they have also been encouraged to nominate researchers
from other countries but with an intended association with the nominating university. Each university may
nominate up to four candidates, two of whom must come from another university in Sweden or abroad.
After a rigorous selection procedure, some 15 per cent of the nominees are admitted to the programme.

The call for nominations is circulated in September, with the deadline for proposals in December. The final
decisions are made in June 2022, and the researchers will commence their initial period in the programme
in July 2023.
