KTH Materials Platform

Materials research at KTH covers a very wide spectrum of materials and their applications. Activities can often be traced from a focus towards a specific application or industry such as mining, electronics, or the wood fiber industry.

The platforms are discontinued

The research platforms will cease as of July 1, 2024. As a result, the research platforms will no longer exist in their previous form. Consequently, the platforms' web pages will not be updated. The web pages will be discontinued shortly.

Materials research at KTH

For KTH researchers

News, events, and calls for KTH researchers is available on the Intranet.

The KTH Materials Platform connects more than 1000 researchers in over 80 research groups and around 26 competence centres  in six thematic areas  related to materials issues.

Materials science has traditionally been an important multidisciplinary research area at KTH with strong ties to Swedish industry and areas such as mechanics, process technology, design, product development, and life cycle analysis. Materials is one of KTH's six multidisciplinary focus areas, with many research projects aiming at contributing to sustainable development.
