The first call for applications, Sustainable Idea Exploration, within the University’s Sustainability Fund opened during the autumn. The aim is to explore the innovative potential of sustainability-related research projects at an early stage. Four projects have now been granted funding.
One of the projekts addresses text mining for environmental science and was applied for by Sonja Aits, Department of Experimental Medical Science. The project will construct an AI-based tool for text processing in environmental science, which could be used by researchers, companies and other organisations working on sustainable solutions. The method is based on similar research from medical science. This will ensure that the best evidence-based solutions and policies can be developed in order to address sustainability challenges.
