Research at KTH's competence centres addresses, above all, newer subject areas, and is often carried out in collaboration 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 have their own board, with representatives from trade, business and society, while others are autonomous units directly subordinate to KTH's President. The majority of our centres are maintaining close connections with industry. Some are also acting as liaison offices between KTH and other universities.
