A very important discovery which paves the way for new and more effective treatments for such illnesses as Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and a host of age-related disorders. That’s KTH protein technology researcher Torbjörn Gräslund’s verdict on the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Medicine to Yoshinori Ohsumi for his work on mapping of the mechanics behind cells' ability to break down and recycle their components.
The EE School is happy to welcome Professor Joe H. Chow from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY, USA) who recently joined the department of Electric power and energy systems. During his time at KTH, he will conduct research focusing on power system modeling and simulation methods.
Researchers at the Department of Micro- and Nanosystems at KTH have developed a new way to simultaneously shape and surface treat plastic components. The new method can reduce the manufacturing cost of medical devices, such as diagnostic tools for various diseases.
During the weekend of 28 and 29 May 2016, the city of Helmond was the centre of an international event in the field of cooperative driving: the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC). Out of ten student teams from six European countries, KTH scored a place in the top three.
KTH is one of six partner universities in a new national graduate school for neutron scattering science, which is a key part of Sweden's emergence as an international hub for this versatile area of research. The director of studies for the new school explains what it means for KTH.
Sometimes all it takes to get help from someone is to wave at them, or point. Now the same is true for robots. Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have completed work on an EU project aimed at enabling robots to cooperate with one another on complex jobs, by using body language.
During the last ten years, the ACCESS Linnaeus center has conducted successful research within the broad area of networked systems. A total of 60 faculty members and postdocs and 100 PhD students from different disciplines collaborate in ACCESS, and together they have created Europe’s leading center in the broad area of networked systems. To celebrate its achievements, a major industrial and academic event will be organized on the 2nd of May.
Windows and solar panels in the future could be made from one of the best — and cheapest — construction materials known: wood. Researchers at Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a new transparent wood material that's suitable for mass production.
