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 address the constant challenge of maintaining and developing state-of-the-art 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 expanding already funded projects will not be considered. RED project grants will be funded at a maximum level of 750 tkr/yr with 2 years of possible project support. The long-term ambition is to provide support for 6-8 on-going RED projects.
Evaluation: Applications will be reviewed by a panel comprised of one/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 November 24, 2022 meeting.
