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. The administrating organisation is the Swedish academic department that manages your research grant.
The chief applicant and Head of Department, or equivalent, must sign the form before you send it to us by email or by post: CIF, Box 5626, 114 86 Stockholm.
