WASP-HS is welcoming six new projects with the aim to advance ground-breaking scientific cooperation between researchers at different universities as well as between researchers and external partners.

To facilitate networking within academia as well as between academia and external partners WASP-HS launched the call – NetX: Networking Excellence Projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences for the Study of Consequences and Challenges of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, during spring.  A total of 25 MSEK was allocated to the call and after a review process six projects were granted funding.
