Strategic mobility 2021 – they receive funding!

For the fifteenth year in a row, the beneficiaries of SSF Strategic Mobility (SM 21) have now been appointed. Ten million SEK is divided between nine projects. The purpose of the program is to give researchers the opportunity to grow by changing research environment for a time, to go from academia / research institute to business / government / hospital, or vice versa.

This year’s project spans over a wide range of areas, from being able to diagnose respiratory infections more quickly with the help of biosensors in patients’ exhaled air, to energy-efficient AI by creating hardware more similar to the human brain with so-called memristors.

Here are the ten projects that will receive the 2021 grant:

Applicant  Project title  Mobility  Grant (SEK)
Mattias Borg Robust neuromorphic computing using ferroelectric memristors Lund University -> Ericsson Research 1 328 800
