Competence centres

Research at the Competence Centres addresses newer subject areas. These efforts are often conducted in joint projects with business life and various societal bodies. 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.

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.

Center for Mechanics and Materials (MMD)

The Center brings together the two disciplines Mechanics and Materials Science in order to speed up the processes for producing better materials. The long-term goal is a renewed and strengthened education at the basic, advanced and research levels in the field.

Competence Center for Gas Exchange (CCGEx)

CCGEx focuses on research regarding gas management in modern internal combustion engines for vehicles. The aim is to make engines more effective and environment-friendly and decrease fuel consumption without losing performance.

Design & Management of Manufacturing Systems (DMMS)

DMMS is a center of excellence in the field product development with a focus on production. In close collaboration with its partners Scania, Sandvik, Swerea IVF and Chalmers MCR, they spread competence within areas like advanced component manufacturing, methodology and digital production support.

The research spans from materials that are industrially relevant today and have a potential for improvement as well as materials that are expected to become important in the near future.

Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL)

ITRL is a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder arena. Our mission is to explore sustainable mobility solutions that greatly reduce CO2 emissions and are economically viable and socially accepted.

Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems (ICES)

ICES involves members from several KTH schools working closely with a wide range of industrial partners. The aim is to tackle the issues faced by those researching and working in the increasingly complex field of embedded systems today.

Powertrain Manufacturing for Heavy Vehicles Application Lab (PMH)

A research center run in collaboration with the German research organization Fraunhofer and RISE. Their mission is to improve the technology of powertrain production for heavy vehicles on high technology readiness levels, and spread the knowledge.

Prototype Center

KTH Prototype Center is the best and easiest way to test out your idea. Our goal is to make the jump from idea to realized prototype as short as possible and to help businesses get going quickly.

Trustworthy Edge Computing Systems and Applications (TECoSA)

TECoSA is a Vinnova center with 13 industrial partners. Its aim is to provide safe and secure edge computing technology. Edge computing is a new computer level located between the devices/embedded systems and the cloud, on the “edge of the cloud”

House of Science (Vetenskapens Hus)
