Association of projects

Association of projects is the first step in becoming an Associated researcher.

The application is made by the project manager.

Personal association (Associated researcher)

Individual association is the second step, which is done in person.

The link requires a password.

Who can become associated to Treesearch

Treesearch is open to you who work in Sweden in research on materials and specialty chemicals from forest raw materials.

To become an Associated researcher you have to be either

  • Researcher in the academy, regardless of which university in Sweden you belong to. If you work closely with research in a role other than researchers, you can join as a research affiliate within the academy.
  • Postdoctoral fellow or doctoral student employed in academia or industry.
  • Researchers in industry and institutes must belong to one of Treesearch’s partners.

How to become an Associated researcher

Association to Treesearch takes place in two steps: association of research project and personal association.

Step 1 is to associate a research project. This is done once per project by the project manager. The application is open to all projects within Treesearch’s thematic research areas, regardless the size of the project. Treesearch will then contact the project manager to provide a password for the second part of the application.

The projects are presented on the Treesearch webpage to increase the visibility of the research that is ongoing in Sweden and also linked to from the project manager’s profile.

In step 2, researchers in the project can, after recieving a password from the project manager, individually apply to become Associated researcher in Treesearch. You will get an instant conformation of that Treesearch has recieved your application and a final conformation will be sent within some days.

The application must be made individually to comply with the data protection regulation (GDPR). You only need to fill in the application one time, even if you are active in several projects.

All associated researchers are listed on the Treesearch webpage, with an individual profile.

Links to both application steps are found above. If you have questions about the association process, contact

Alternative association for you who are at a Treesearch partner:

If you are a researcher/PhD student/postdoctor or in other ways are working with research and are employed in an organization that is a Treesearch partner, you can become an Associated researcher without belonging to an associated project.

To get a password, please contact or the contact person in your organization.
