Research Initiative on Sustainable Industry and Society (IRIS)

IRIS is an initiative for enabling researchers to work together, across departments at the ITM school, on joint research projects. With the holistic interdisciplinary perspective, the aim is to enhance the impact of KTH's research for more a sustainable industry and society.

Interdisciplinarity for a new industrial society

The mission of the ITM school is to lead the transition towards a zero-emission, adaptable industrial-society characterized by new product and service designs, new materials, new business models, sustainable energy systems, recycling, reuse and remanufacture. The interdisciplinary project IRIS shows the way.
