Long Description: 
Formas, the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning, is a governmental research-funding agency related to 
several ministries, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Industry, Employment and Communications and the Ministry
of Education and Science. Formas encourages and supports scientifically significant research related to sustainable development. Especially this means support in the areas of
the environment, agricultural sciences including forestry, horticulture, veterinary medicine, food, fish and reindeer husbandry, and spatial planning
including building sciences and community systems. The projects supported cover a wide range of approaches from basic research to more applied efforts and
within the built environment also demonstration and experimental projects. Formas stimulates activities aiming at cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary approaches within its area of responsibility. Funding rates for applicants are 50% for research institutes and 100% for universities. Formas has no programme focussed on soil and groundwater remediation. Formas supports projects which are suggested by researchers and approved by a panel
of experts. They also have, from a previous organisation some ongoing projects on remediation as a part of a programme on: 'Ground and Water in the Built Environment'.
Formas spend around 1 M per year for new projects in these areas - contaminated land, soil and groundwater protection and spreading of pollutants in soil and
