Scholar in residence

The Digital Futures ‘Scholar-in-Residence’ programme aims to provide scholars at non-Swedish universities with financial support to enable short and longer-term visits to the Digital Futures environment (minimum 1 month, maximum 12 months). This programme of funding aims to support academics who wish to benefit from a sabbatical within Digital Futures. How this time away from a home institution is used is flexible and for the scholar-in-residence to decide.

Our hope for this programme of funding is to broaden the diversity of those taking part in Digital Futures, to enable new global perspectives on digitalisation research to influence our progress.  In all cases, we intend that the scholar-in-residence programme should enrich the activities of Digital Futures through participation in, for example, research, teaching, events, and mentorship of early career researchers.
