They receive Lise Meitner’s Grants for Israeli-Swedish Research Collaboration

A total of eight research projects share nearly 50 million SEK in the call for “Lise Meitner Grants for Israeli-Swedish Research Collaboration”, a collaboration between the Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, and Israel’s Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology, MOST.

The projects are about everything from developing drugs against fatty liver disease, to reducing the content of persistent organic pollutants in sewage treatment plants using photocatalytic filters, to building more efficient computer systems for self-driving vehicles by putting processors and memories in the same module or chip.

The grants go to the following projects:
