22 million in VR grants


The Swedish Research Council (VR) has awarded five project grants and one starting grant totaling just over 22 million SEK to researchers at the Department of Mathematics at Uppsala University during 2023-2027. VR rewards research of the highest scientific quality in national competition. In the same call, VR distributed a total of approximately SEK 82 million for research in mathematics.
