The Rudolf W. Palm Foundation was one of the funds transferred from Lund University to Malmö University in conjunction with the new university status. The criteria for receiving Rudolf W Palm Foundation funding are strongly aligned with education at the Faculty of Technology and Society and any purposes that are prioritised by the faculty management. The Faculty Dean would like to see proposals to be submitted to the grant committee for consideration. The grant total is SEK 50 000 for 2020.
Employees at the Faculty of Science and Technology are welcome to send proposals to their Head of Department. The proposal should include the aim of the proposed project and how it will be of importance to the faculty, the main-applicant and co-applicants, as well as an overview of how any funds will be spent.
Please send your proposals to your Head of Department, Katja Frid (after 1 March, and Mats Persson before end of February) at MTM or Bo Peterson at DVMT, no later than Sunday, 5 April 2020.
