The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), established in 1827, is one of Europe's top schools for science and engineering, graduating one-third of Sweden's undergraduate and graduate engineers in the full range of engineering disciplines. Enrollment is about 17,500 students, of which about 1,400 are pursuing PhD studies. In this proposal, KTH is represented by the Biophysics division led by Prof. Erik Lindahl located at Science for Life Laboratory.


The University of Salerno (“UNISA”) is ideally linked to the oldest academic institution in the Old Continent: the Schola Medica Salernitana. Founded in the eighth century AD, the School reached its peak between the 10th and 13th century. In addition to medicine, its lectures included philosophy, theology and law. The School, which earned Salerno the title of Hippocratica Civitas (City of Hippocrates) after the famous Greek physician and treatise writer, was closed by royal decree in 1811 under Joachim Murat’s Napoleonic government. In 1944, by decree of king Victor Emmanuel III, the Istituto Universitario di Magistero “Giovanni Cuomo” was founded. This became state-owned in 1968, changing its name into Facoltà di Magistero dell’Università degli Studi di Salerno.


Founded in 1669, the Leopold-Franzens University Innsbruck is the largest university in the western part of Austria. Located at a traditional north-south crossroads connecting Europe, we are oriented internationally while positioned locally. Learning from the long and sometimes problematic history of the University, we build bridges into the future. Our strength is managing seemingly conflicting topics in a productive manner: asking globally oriented but regionally motivated research questions; self-confidently breaking with well-established knowledge while consciously respecting traditions; and capitalizing on academic freedom while treating it responsibly. In this environment of balanced diversity everyone at the University acts as a member of society as well as a link to society.
