Changes relating to your grant

If you have been absent and need more time to complete your research project, or if you would like to switch to a different administrating organisation, you can request a change to your grant. The administrating organisation is the Swedish academic department that manages your research grant.

Extension of availability period

The contract from CIF states the availability period. Criteria for extension:

  • Parental leave or long-term illness of the chief applicant or an employee who is important to the project.
  • Circumstances outside the control of the chief applicant or the administrating organisation and which have affected the possibility of carrying out the research on time for example the covid-19 pandemic.

You must clearly state the reason for needing to extend the availability period. The chief applicant should submit the request for an extension in good time before the end of the availability period. Please note that the administrating organisation, the Head of Department or equivalent, must also sign the request, before you send it to us.

Change of administrating organisation

If you need to change to a different administrating organisation (for example, if you change employers), you must send a request to CIF. It is important that you send a request well in advance of the change.

The chief applicant and the current administrating organisation signs the form and send it to CIF together with a letter of support from the new administrating organisation.

When you change to a new administrating organisation, the current administrating organisation must submit a final financial report to us. Read more about it here.

CIF signs a new contract with the chief applicant at the new university from the date the chief applicant is employed or affiliated until the original availability period.
