Description of call for proposal

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research announces SEK 300 million in a national call for proposals for problem- or application-driven research projects that meet the highest international scientific standards. The call aims to stimulate collaborative interdisciplinary research within the area of smart systems, of relevance to present or future Swedish-based industry and to society. This call takes aim at the ICT’s abilities to improve the designs and functionalities of existing kinds of technological system or to create entirely novel types. A system exhibiting smartness should be expected to analyse and communicate with its environments, respond to changes autonomously, and learn from its experience. It might blend into a human environment with its inner complexity largely hidden from users.
