Here are the 2021 Industrial Doctoral Student Projects!

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, is investing SEK 30 million in the SSF Industry Doctoral Student program. Now 12 projects have been selected, each of which is granted SEK 2.5 million. The grant is given for four to five years and should result in a doctoral degree.

The program will stimulate need-driven, excellent research in SSF’s areas of science, technology and medicine. It will also increase cross-fertilization between academia and business and train strategically and competently attractive doctors.

The projects are about everything from using CRISPR technology to create new drugs against viruses, to developing new methods and technology, so-called neutron-gamma emission tomography, to analyze the contents of barrels with radioactive waste that must be disposed.

The following projects are awarded grants:
