Principles for project funding
All PhD projects are sponsored by industrial partners with finances and/or inkind contribution: SweGRIDS makes additional funding available by national funding (Swedish Energy Agency) and further contributions from partners.
The major SweGRIDS partners are the same as InnoEnergy CC Sweden partners. However, additional partners not currently in KIC InnoEnergy can be included in SweGRIDS.
Project selection is done by a Steering board consisting of members from the major stake‐holders.
The expected lifespan is 10 years from the start date of Dec.01, 2011.
SweGRIDS is strongly connected to the Swedish theme of KIC InnoEnergy and to national demonstration platforms on smart grids. The main research areas of SweGRIDS are the same as the CC Sweden innovation projects. PhD projects support CC Sweden Innovation projects by creating background knowledge. PhD students can apply to join the Smart Electric Grids and Storage track of the InnoEnergy PhD School, which provides further education and activities in the direction of entrepreneurship, business and innovation.
