The Swedish Research Council (VR) is contributing SEK 1.6 million to STINT’s Joint Japan-Sweden Research Collaboration for the period 2019–2022. This means that a total of SEK 1.6 million is granted to three projects. STINT’s Japanese partner, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), finances the Japanese participants at an equivalent level.
After expert review, assessment and a joint decision meeting with JSPS, the following projects were selected:
|Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB), C2||Karolinska
|Karolinska Institutet – Tohoku University Redox and Biobank Network (KIT-ReBioN)|
|Department of Architecture and the Built Environment||Lunds
|Cross-cultural study on development and evaluation of environmental educational tools in preschools to promote pro-environmental behaviours in Japan and Sweden|
