Matchmaking Event – Data Science and Medical/Clinical Research
Matchmaking event between researchers within Data Science and Medical/Clinical research at KTH and Region Stockholm, related to the Health, Medicine and Technology Project Call 2023.
Time: Thu 2022-04-28 15.00 - 17.00
Region Stockholm and KTH will open the yearly call for collaboration in Health, Medicine and Technology 14 April, 2022. A key requirement to apply for this call is that one of the partners should be from KTH and one from Region Stockholm.
The event is open for all researchers at KTH and Region Stockholm who are eligible to submit a grant proposal for the Health, Medicine and Technology Project Call. Postdoctoral researchers who can be co-PI are encouraged to attend the event.
We want to encourage collaboration between experts in data science and clinical research.
The purpose of this matchmaking event is:
- bringing together researchers with expertise in data science and clinical research, respectively
- making researchers aware of the opportunities and limitations of data analysis and of access to experimental/clinical data
- making researchers aware of the need for continuous and bi-directional interaction between data scientists and clinicians.
We hope that this event will facilitate your search for suitable research partners and help you prepare a strong grant application, for this call as well for other future calls.

What you need to do
- Fill in the registration form no later than 22 April, 2022
- Provide us with two Powerpoint slides describing what you would like to do, can contribute with, or would like to get help with. These slides will be available to all participants before the workshop, to let everybody scan through the scope of the other participants, and they will help us form discussion groups.
