KTH Innovation's support

The only thing you need to get started is an idea or a research result you think could create impact. You don't need to apply. We're always interested in hearing about new technology from KTH. Together, we can create solutions for a better future.

The concrete and constructive feedback we got and the fact that the coaches really cared about us was invaluable. Without KTH Innovation, we wouldn't be where we are today.

For advanced research and new ideas

Since the start in 2007, we have supported thousands of ideas from students, researchers and employees at KTH in all areas of technology. Our support is tailor-made for you to be able to continue with your research, work or studies while developing your idea. 

You don't need to apply - our support is open to everyone at KTH

Our support is open to all students, researchers and employees at KTH. You don't need any prior experience of innovation, commercialisation or entrepreneurship - your ideas and technical competence combined with our expertise is the ideal recipe for getting new technology onto the market and creating impact in society.

We take no ownership in your idea, and you don't have to apply for our support. To get started, all you have to do is get in touch. Start developing an idea.
