Decisions on new studies are made based on an application in Swedish or English (maximum 3000 words) which should contain a brief project description. On the page "Write for Delmi" there is more information about things that are good to know when you write your application. Project applications in the field of migration and integration can be made by researchers who are affiliated with a university or equivalent. The projects are estimated to take approximately 6–12 months. It includes an internal scientific seminar with Delmi and an external seminar where the report is presented and published in Delmi's Publications series.
