WASP Announces Call for NESTs

WASP now announces a call for NESTs within AI, Autonomous Systems and Software. NEST is a new instrument in WASP that will encourage Novelty, Excellence, Synergy, and Teams.

Aim and scope of the call

In this call WASP accepts applications from all the five partner universities Chalmers University of Technology, Linköping University, Lund University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Umeå University as well as the research groups at Örebro University and Uppsala University that are members of WASP.

A NEST should address a specific strategic high-priority research challenge within WASP with international impact and visibility that requires the gathered competence of a multi-disciplinary team of investigators in order to be solved. The novelty and originality aspects and the relevance to Swedish industry are important.

The call is open, and the deadline for applications is March 1, 2021.

Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest individual research program, a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education, and faculty recruitment. The program addresses research on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information, and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems.
