More than SEK 90 million for KI research from Forte
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet are awarded close to SEK 93 million in Forte's annual open call for proposals. The projects, which will run until 2027, span all of Forte's areas - health, working life and welfare. This year, a total of 20 projects at KI have been granted funding.
Many of the funded projects respond to some of the major and most pressing societal challenges of our time - others address more specific challenges of great importance to certain groups of individuals.
