The future of secure communication will be in quantum encryption, and KTH will lead research in this area under the auspices of a new national research center financed by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
Grants will bolster math research at KTH
Mathematics Research at KTH will get a hefty injection of stimulating international exchanges, made possible by six grants from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation mathematics programs.
Microfluidics and Nanotech Research Aims for New Cancer Diagnostics
KTH is home to a new research project in droplet microfluidics and nanowire technology, aiming to develop techniques for rapid detection of cancer cells circulating in patients’ blood. The team has set an ambitious target of a clinical sensitivity of one cancer cell per millilitre of blood.
Project receives EUR 3.2 million to explore limits of efficient computability
Research dealing with complex computational problems and the methods for solving them is one of the projects at KTH that recently received funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
New funding for students and young researchers
KTH has set up a new fund for awarding scholarships and grants to students and young researchers. The donation-based fund received a large additional contribution through an initiative taken by KTH's chairman Börje Ekholm.
Researchers target tenfold increase in X-ray resolution
For all of its benefit to society, the technology we use for medical imaging is nevertheless flawed. Relevant little details go undetected due to limitations in resolution. But a recent investment in research at KTH aims to improve the picture – by at least 10 times.
Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) is the primary financial benefactor of basic research in medicine, technology and science in Sweden. Since its establishment in 1917 the Foundation has allocated SEK 35 billion, of which SEK 2,2 billion are granted annually for the promotion of excellent basic research and education in Sweden.
