NetX – Networking Excellence Projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences for the Study of Consequences and Challenges of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems
NetX is a network initiative that aims to advance groundbreaking scientific cooperation between researchers at different universities and between researchers and external partners. Project proposals should address an issue of highest priority for the goals and vision of WASP-HS that requires the gathered competence of a multidisciplinary or cross-sectorial team. The proposed research must be novel and original, of international academic significance and of societal relevance. Special funds are allocated for proposals that focus explicitly on excellent humanities research and/or are collaborations with relevant Wallenberg Foundation programs.

Guest Professors Stage 2 – For Invited Universities
One of WASP-HS instruments is recruitment of Guest Professors. Through the recruitment of six Guest Professors WASP-HS aims to establish strong international relations and thereby ensuring continued excellent research at the host universities on a specific topic. The Guest Professor should strengthen the vision of WASP-HS of excellent multidisciplinary research with high relevance both nationally and internationally. During the evaluation process particular importance will be placed on the scientific excellence and international profile of the candidate, the benefits for the host university and the candidate’s contribution to WASP-HS. 

Cross-Project Collaboration – WASP-HS Call for Collaboration Between Projects
The call for Cross-Project Collaboration is aimed at WASP-HS research and PhD projects. The initiative supports research on issues that require a multidisciplinary approach and are relevant for two or more projects. Collaborations can focus on specific research problems, conceptual, methodological, or theoretical issues, or other scientific inquiries. A maximum of 100,000 SEK can be requested for one collaboration. The call is continuously ongoing and applications for collaborations between projects can be submitted at any time.
