Manchester – KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University Joint Research Fund

The University of Manchester, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University are launching a joint research fund to support collaborative research projects between the three institutions.

The aim of the fund is to catalyse new collaborations and, in the longer term, to build international teams who are well positioned to apply for external research funding. 

There are currently no open calls.
