BioMEx Center

Welcome to BioMEx, the Center for Biomechanical Modeling and Experimentation.

KTH BioMEx Center is offering seed funding for projects in Biomechanics for post docs and PhD students

Context: KTH BioMEx Center has existed since 2013 with a vision to increase the amount and the visibility of Biomechanics research at KTH.

Seed funding: The BioMEx director and board of directors will select between approximately 3-8 projects for seed funding during 2020 of between 50-100 kkr each. Eligibility is post doc or PhD student at KTH in a research area central to the topic Biomechanics. The project must fit clearly within the center’s scope and visions. The seed funding must follow all ordinary FoFU financing rules.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • Enable or strengthen new collaborations between KTH schools and/or departments
  • Encourage collaborations with other universities or research institutions, nationally or internationally
  • Have a high potential to result in a publication

Application: A short project proposal, max 2 pages, that describes project objectives, proposed methods, potential impact (in relation to the center’s goals), novelty, collaboration, and preliminary budget. A 1-page CV and publication list from the main applicant (the post doc or PhD student) must also be included. Priority among PhD students will be given based on seniority. PhD students must provide a brief support letter from one of their supervisors.

Deadline: 10 February 2020, kl 23.00. Decisions will be made by 28 Feb 2020 and financing will be provided during March 2020. Submissions should be made to .

Report: Recipients are required to present their progress during a board meeting in late 2020, and are required to write KTH BioMEx Center as one of their affiliations in publications or conference abstracts that arise from efforts during this project period. The funding must be used during 2020, after which the applicants must submit a financial report.
