Campus Solna is characterized by a research community actively pushing the envelope of what is technically possible to solve important and complex questions in biology. To stimulate the development of next-generation technical infrastructures, seed funding for new initiatives is available. RED Project funding is intended to enable groups at Campus Solna to explore novel technical applications that may be considered high risk and not quite mature enough to attract conventional funding. Projects should be well-defined with a strong potential impact if proof-of-principle can be obtained. Continuation, or expansion, of already funded projects will not be considered. RED project grants will be funded for 1-2 years with a maximum of 750 kSEK/y. The ambition is to provide annual RED grant project funding at a level of 3-6 MSEK/y.
Evaluation: Applications will be reviewed by a panel comprised of two external representatives from each Stockholm Trio university and recommendations for funding will be presented by the Scientific Directors to the Campus Solna Committee for decision at the October 14, 2021 meeting.
