KTH research plays a key role in planning the future of urban environments, but no actor can make a lasting impact in isolation.
In research and education, KTH works in a wide range of collaborations with public and private sector partners with the goal of achieving a brighter tomorrow. Here are just a few of the ways KTH research is making a difference.
