Principal Investigator Meeting

WASP-HS has since the start in 2019 been through an impressive period of growth. Today the program consists of 34 research projects (directly funded by MAW and MMW), 9 collaborative research projects, 10 affiliated projects, 6 Guest Professors, 11 Assistant Professors and 74 PhD Students. Behind these numbers both groundbreaking knowledge production and an impressive community building has taken place. All of this has happened despite the pandemic circumstances that shaped the first two years of the program.

This year both the board and management team of WASP-HS are busy with the prolongation application for the program. The aim of this meeting is therefore for PIs and co-PIs to get a chance to share highlights, results and experiences and to discuss potential lines of development and research themes for the second phase of the program that will start in 2024. In addition, the meeting will include four research presentations by the Ukrainian researchers that joined the program last year following a special call by the Wallenberg foundations.

As preparation for the meeting, we would like to ask you to reflect on the main results, or other highlights from your project, and to think about the topics of the group discussions as indicated in the program below.

Looking forward to seeing you!
