KI Research Incubator is now launched!
During the spring junior researchers at KI who have met set criteria have been invited to apply to become members in KI Research Incubator.
In the applications the researchers had to motivate why they want to participate, what they can contribute with and what type of collaborations they are interested in. Now the first 34 members, the KIRI-Fellows, have finally been selected (19 men and 15 women; 1/3 are clinicians).
On April 19 2022, a start-up meeting was held where the new KIRI-Fellows met for the first time. At the meeting the KIRI-Fellows introduced themselves to each other, discussed upcoming joint activities and how collaborations between KIRI-Fellows best can be stimulated and supported. The ideas were many and the commitment and energy high. With the start-up meeting, the research incubator is now up and running!
A science mingle is now waiting in May where KIRI-Fellows will be able to discuss their research and possibilities for collaboration in a relaxed atmosphere.
During summer a call for proposals is planned. Through this call the KIRI-Fellows will jointly be able to apply for funding of interdisciplinary research projects. The funding is to be used for a joint postdoc to run the project for two years.
