Funding is key when it comes to commercialising an idea or research result. Every year, KTH Innovation helps KTH projects secure over 40 million SEK in funding.

Find the right funding for you

We have over ten years of experience of supporting students, employees and researchers from KTH. In the beginning, a key factor is securing funding to validate the potential of your idea. The funding can for example be used for market resarch, prototyping or testing an idea with a potential customer. In a later stage, we can help you secure investment.
