Competence centres

Research at ITMs Competence Centres addresses, above all, newer subject areas; these efforts are often conducted in joint projects with business life and various societal bodies. A Centre may be connected to a certain KTH Department but still conduct research on its own.

Most of them have their own Board, with representatives from trade, business and society; others are autonomous Units directly subordinate to the KTH President. The majority of our Centres are maintaining close connections with industry. Some of them are also acting as liaison offices between KTH and other universities.
