Strategic research and competence centres
Research at KTH's is to a large extent conducted in co-operation with companies and various societal bodies. The co-operations are often organized as competence centres, connected to a certain part of KTH, but still conducting research on its own.
Most centres have a board, with representatives from trade, business and society. KTH also has a leading role in five strategic research areas; Information and communication technology (ICT), Molecular Bioscience, Transport, Production and e-Science. Among the other areas we have received substantial funding within Energy.
KTH forms a part of four consortia of the prestigious EU collaboration, European institute of Innovation and technology that will make Europe a global leader for innovations. KTH is a part in ICT (KIC EIT Digital), sustainable energy (KIC InnoEnergy), raw materials (KIC EIT Raw Materials) and healthy living and active ageing (KIC EIT Health.
