Travel grants from the Strategic Funding from LiU

Who can apply?

All LiU employees, including PhD students, teachers and technical/administrative staff, can apply for this travel grant.

What can I apply for?

You can apply for:

  • Trips to establish university networks
  • Trips to consortia meetings to establish Joint Master Programmes
  • Other trips that are meant to increase the international mobility

Applicants who are going to places outside of the European Union are prioritised since the other applicants are able to look for funding through the Erasmus programme for staff. Travels that are eligible for Erasmus grants for teaching assignments, staff training or preparatory visits cannot receive SAINT funding. The travel grant is 8 000 SEK per trip, at most 16 000 SEK per network/Joint Master Programme (that is to say funding for at most two persons per trip). It is up to the applicant to look for funding through other sources, e.g. the Erasmus funding mentioned above. The Strategic Funding from LiU grants can be complemented with Faculty grants.

How do I apply?

Deadlines are 1/3, 1/6, 15/9 and 1/12. The application should be filled out in a correct and complete manner as well as signed by your closest executive or his/her equivalent. Incomplete applications are not taken into consideration.


Selection and results

All applications received during an application period will be collected and ranked by the Faculty concerned. Applications from employees within the central administration will be ranked by the Director of International Relations. The rankings are then coordinated and the applications are approved in relation to the available mobility funds. You will receive an email (to the address that you specified in the application) regarding whether or not your application has been successful.

After your trip

Upon your return, submit your evaluation in the on-line Travel Grant portal under "uploading documents" (click "Start new application"). The grant will be paid to the cost centre and project number that you stated in your application. Your travel expense claim should be submitted as per normal to your department/division.
