Category Call for proposal

The Swedish foundation Ekhagastiftelsen (Ekhaga foundation) was established in 1944 to support research in ecological agriculture and biological medicine.

Prioritized research areas:

    • Organic and biodynamic food production or other methods and orientations that promote this goal. Research on improved preparation and storage of food, as well as the analysis of food quality can receive support.
    • Role of the diet in the treatment of diseases and strengthening the body's resistance.
    • Physical impact and bodily functions of complementary medicine (e.g. integrative, biological or alternative medicine).

Ekhagastiftelsen funds strategic and innovative projects of a pilot nature, as well as research that is highly newsworthy. It also supports participatory research projects, in which, for example, farmers and scientists work together to identify research questions and methods, and jointly evaluate the results.

Besides scientific research, Ekhagastiftelsen also supports, to a lesser extent, training activities, documentation projects, books, conferences or seminars.
