Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest individual research program and provides a platform for academic research and education, fostering interaction with Sweden’s leading companies. The program addresses research in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and software as enabling technologies for developing systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information, and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems of systems. WASP strengthens, expands, and renews the national competence through new strategic recruitments, a challenging research program, a national graduate school, and collaboration with industry. The program is conducted in close cooperation between leading Swedish universities to promote the competence of Sweden as a nation within the area of AI, autonomous systems and software.
The SciLifeLab and Wallenberg national program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) was launched in 2020 by (KAW). DDLS is a 12-year funding initiative to support data-driven life science in Sweden, across 11 universities and institutions with SciLifeLab as the host. The program will focus on four strategic research areas of data-driven research: Cell and molecular biology, Evolution and biodiversity, Precision medicine and diagnostics and, Epidemiology and biology of infection.
