Proof of concept funding of life science innovations
With the aim to bridge the funding gap between academic research and innovation in life science, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and SciLifeLab present the 2024 opportunity to apply for Proof of Concept Grant in Life Science. The grant gives researchers an opportunity to develop their early-stage discoveries towards validated methods, products or processes.
The secret life of Artic plants
For a long time, people believed that plants don’t do anything during winter. That they just lie there under the snow cover. Dormant, almost dead. But in the far north of Sweden - in the Arctic - Ellen Dorrepaal, Umeå University, leads a group of researchers who are about to discover that the plants have a secret life, the likes of which no one has seen. Join Ellen to Abisko in the Arctic and her field experiments and research to understand the life of plants and how climate change - with milder winters - will change the landscapes in the north.
