This years recipients have been announced

We are a foundation that supports research on inflammatory neurological conditions through annual grants. This year's winners are announced at the bottom of this page. Next application period begins in the autumn of 2020.



Published on 2 October 2020

The Bertil and Ebon Norlin Foundation for Medical Research will award a minimum of 500,000 SEK in support of advanced medical research in Sweden. The foundation prioritizes projects in the area of inflammatory diseases, especially inflammatory neurological disorders. The grant money will be distributed among 2-8 applicants.

If the project is part of a larger project, such as a SRC/VR project, the research plan for the larger project may be included in the application. Otherwise a separate research plan (maximum 4 pages) and personal information (curriculum vitae) for the main applicant should be included. The hypothesis and the project plan has to be written in Swedish. We will only consider applications that contain a clearly stated hypothesis which can be tested within the frame of the project. The grants will be awarded in March 2020. A scientific and economical summary has to be provided to the foundation within three years of receiving a grant or before a new application.
