SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science

The practice of life science is continuously becoming more data-dependent. The amount and complexity of data is growing exponentially, and more scientific discoveries are enabled when data is openly available to researchers across the world. This is the basis for the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program on Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), which now sets out on its mission to recruit and train the next generation of life scientists as well as to create strong and globally competitive computational and data science capabilities in Swedish life science. The program is funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation with a total of 3.1 billion SEK (about 300Meuro, 350MUSD) over 12 years and SciLifeLab, as a national infrastructure for life science, coordinates this program in close collaboration with ten universities (Chalmers, GU, KI, KTH, LiU, LU, SLU, SU, UmU and UU) and the Swedish Museum of Natural History).

WASP and DDLS joint call for research projects 2023

In the light of last year’s successful cooperation, WASP and the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program on Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), are now announcing their second joint project call.
