Dare to think differently

A fundamental prerequisite for the development of both society, culture and business is that there are individuals who dare to think differently. By challenging old patterns and find alternative ways forward, their initiative opens new worlds that we never otherwise would have had access to.

Sten K Johnson Foundation honors and supports individuals who with courage and decisiveness dare to try different approaches in order to develop the discipline that the applicant acts within. The Foundation welcomes applications with the aim to give the new and untried a chance to get attention in a wider context.

Dare to collaborate across borders

Current research and development is increasingly permeated by the realization that the intersection between different disciplines have the opportunity to make unique knowledge wins. Such interdisciplinary initiatives are based on deep basic skills, but by working together across borders creates insights, innovations and solutions that would not otherwise have been possible.

Sten K Johnson Foundation encourages collaboration across knowledge borders in order to contribute to the unique knowledge wins for both business and society.

Finally we were able to gather our grant winners and hold an awards ceremony again!

This year we have 56 lucky grant winners whom we look forward to following.
A short summary of each project can be found under “grants 2022”. We will also regularly publish project updates here on FB and LinkedIn.
