Ongoing Research pairs projects

The funding instrument Research pairs is intended to foster collaboration between two young researchers that have obtained their doctoral degrees not more than ten years ago at the time of application. The researchers in the pair should belong to either i) two different KTH schools, ii) KTH school and RISE/Stockholm University, or iii) RISE and Stockholm University.

The instrument is aimed to identify new research collaborations that have potential to develop into a leading scientific activity over the next three to five years and therefore be a vehicle for supporting and promoting young scholars with the potential to become future digital leaders. The 2-year projects should address cutting-edge research within subject areas at the intersection of the Research matrix and should involve researchers that complement each other and conduct interdisciplinary research.
