Vinnvård Fellows - call for application

Vinnvård aims to inspire and enable people, teams and organizations to make lasting improvements to healthcare. The purpose is to develop knowledge, capability, leadership and a will to improve – all necessary components for bringing about real and lasting improvement.

In 2012 Vinnvård launched a fellowship programme. Having accepted four Fellows in the first round, we now issue a second call for applications.

We intend to fund four qualified researchers (SEK 1.5 million per fellow, SEK 500 000/year for three years), giving them the opportunity to undertake new research, develop leadership skills and put research experiences into practice with a view to improve healthcare. The fellowship corresponds to approximately 50-60% of fulltime employment, since we wish to encourage applicants to divide their time between research and professional activities in the social and health services.

Key criteria for evaluating applications:

  • academic and research track record,

  • research proposal with a potential for achieving lasting improvement in the healthcare sector,

  • the applicant's understanding of the field of knowledge,

  • development potential (leadership).
