The PLP program in SciLifeLab has decided to identify and support Technology Development Projects with the potential to generate important capabilities within PLP at the major Clinical Microbiology laboratories in Sweden. This will be done by financially supporting technology development projects related to pandemic research in Clin Micro labs. Research and development of analysis methods is needed before and during pandemics and this can be supported financially within the PLP program and by giving access to the SciLifeLab infrastructure and research network. Areas of interest are diagnostics and analyses of infectious diseases, analyses of immune responses during infections and vaccination and studies of resistance development in viruses, bacteria and other infectious agents. The TDP can also involve education of personnel and support of bioinformatic analyses and data handling.
Applicants can apply for up to 1 MSEK/year for 1 year (2022/2023) with a potential for further funding 2024. A maximum of 8 TDPs will be supported in this call.
The main applicant has to be employed by the Clinical Microbiology laboratory and associated with a University. The TDP grant is personal for the main applicant.
Evaluation criteria: All applications will be evaluated by the SciLifeLab management group and external evaluators. Decision of funding will be made by the SciLifeLab board on March 19, 2022.
Start of funding: April 1, 2022. Funds available until July 31, 2023.
The SciLifeLab committee Uppsala University has decided to identify and support local infrastructures or new technologies (Technology Development Projects) with the potential to be incorporated into national SciLifeLab platforms. The main goal is thus that TDP’s financed by SciLifeLab Uppsala will be able to apply to become national units incorporated into national platforms.
The suggested infrastructures/techniques can be already existing or something that the applicants would like to establish and/or develop during the next 2 years (2022 and 2023).
Applicants can apply for up to 1 MSEK/year for a maximum 2 years with a potential for further funding locally or nationally within SciLifeLab.
The main applicant has to be employed by Uppsala University and at least one of the applicants has to be an officially approved SciLifeLab group leader.
Evaluation criteria: All applications will be evaluated by the local SciLifeLab working group and the coordinators for national
SciLifeLab infrastructure. Decision of funding will be made by the SciLifeLab committee UU on March 14, 2022.
Start of funding: April 1, 2022
