Granted funding for core facilities during the period 2022–2024
The Committee for research has decided to grant operating support totaling approximately SEK 330 million to 37 core facilities for the years 2022-2024.
The approval rate is 55 %. Eight applications to establish new core facilities receive a total of approximately SEK 33 million or the equivalent of 10% of the amount granted. The decision also includes financing of 15 instruments at 10 core facilities.
The applications have been assessed by an assessment group with representatives from KI, appointed by the Committee for Research, and representatives from the Stockholm Region, appointed by the Research Council.
Investments in joint research infrastructure have become increasingly important in order to cope with national and international competition in the life sciences – and are also an important part of KI's Strategy 2030. The current call is co-financed with Region Stockholm and has a broad scope, targeting current and future core facilities within KI's and Region Stockholm's entire operations.
