SSF’s grant for Research Institute doctoral students goes to…

This year’s nine projects in the call for Research Institute PhD students 2022, SSF FID-22, have now been appointed. The selected institutes receive SEK 2.5 million per project so that an employee can obtain a doctorate in a strategic area for Sweden within natural science, technology or medicine.

The projects involves using AI to evaluate which new solar cell materials to invest in, estimating the thermal dynamics of buildings that can be used in the transition from the fourth to the fifth generation district heating, and producing peptides with increased antibacterial effect to materials for clinical use in healthcare with the goal of minimizing antibiotic resistance.

The following projects receive funding:
