   To strengthen collaboration between Japan and Sweden in research, education, and innovation, MIRAI2.0 is launching a call for seed funding to support promising collaborative initiatives. The objective is to encourage further development of existing and new collaborations between MIRAI2.0 member universities based on innovative projects and new ideas.
Researchers from MIRAI2.0 member universities will be able to jointly suggest a project in their field that has the potential to lead to e.g. externally funded research, jointly authored papers, larger scale collaborations, joint programs, short course for PhD and Post-Docs etc.
 
- Projects must include participants from at least one Swedish and one Japanese MIRAI2.0 member university.
- Projects should relate to at least one of the MIRAI2.0 topics:
Ageing, Artificial Intelligence, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Materials Science, Sustainability
