Grants from the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research make up about 25% of our total budget and cover operational costs and the salaries for senior researchers. Funding from Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University covers approximately 15% of our budget and is used to maintain and update our large databases and pay the salaries of postdoctoral and some doctoral students. Large research grants from other sources make up around 60% of our budget. These external grants to individual researchers make it possible for us to employ PhD students and carry out research that allows us to maintain our position as a national center of excellence.
