May-June year 1 - External review
July-August year 1 - Revision
August-September year 1 - Second review (If required)
The faculty ensures that the project plans are sent for external review - both scientific review and review of the co-production. If a project does not receive high enough scores from reviewers, a revision reflecting comments and feedback must be done, then the project proposal is sent for a second review. The complete proposals are again presented to the research environment reference group; they are also presented and reviewed by the faculty board.

September year 1 - Final projects incl. complete budget templates
October year 1 - Checkup, formal requirements

The project plans should be complemented by budget templates - an internal template approved by the department economist and a completed Knowledge Foundation budget template, before all formalities are internally reviewed by the faculty. In connection with the writing of the research environment work plan, the dean decides on a prioritization of project proposals.

End of October year 1 - Submission of applications along with work plan
The applications are submitted to the Knowledge Foundation together with the work plan at the end of October, then the Knowledge Foundation's Expert Group implement a hearing at Mid Sweden University. The outcome of this hearing will result in a decision by mid-December on which ones of the proposed projects that will be granted funds.

Forms and templates

We will publish new budget templates from Knowledge Foundation as soon as they arrive.
