The Government has established eight regional Innovation Offices tied to selected Swedish universities, of which the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is one.
The Innovation Offices are tasked with creating a professional, independent support system for commercialization of technical research at the universities.
The Mälardalen region is the European leader with regards to technical research. 50% of research carried out at KTH is of international top quality and over 50% of institute research in Sweden is conducted on KTH campus. The campus also holds a great number of companies, such as SME, investing heavily in FoU initiatives.
The idea behind the KTH Innovation Office is to create a world class support system for commercializing technical research in the Mälardalen region by boosting existing organisations and collaborate closely with our regional partners.
