HKUST-KTH Global Knowledge Network Awards 2024 

HKUST and KTH Royal Institute of Technology are offering faculty research seed grant awards through our partnership on the Global Knowledge Network. The HKUST-KTH Global Knowledge Network Awards are intended to provide HKUST and KTH faculty teams with initial financial support for collaborative research explorations. These grants have the potential to create new or expanded research partnerships, develop cutting-edge scholarship to create academic and societal impact, and attract external funding.  

These international research exploration seed grants will help support early-stage research projects or capacity-building efforts to establish and sustain long-term collaborations and secure extramural funding. 

  • Each grant requires at least one PI from HKUST and one PI  from KTH. Additional collaborators are welcome but not required. 

  • Grants are open to any HKUST-eligible Principal Investigator and KTH-eligible Principal Investigator from any academic discipline. 

  • In this round, up to four (4) proposals will be funded. Each successful proposal may receive up to the equivalent of HKD 40,000 from HKUST and SEK 52,500 from KTH for a total of approximately HKD 80,000/SEK 105,000 for the joint project. 

  • Funding is available from 1 June 2024 until 31 May 2025.
