KTH and society

Through close collaboration with the surrounding society, KTH is working to find sustainable solutions to today's major societal challenges.

Collaboration projects

Projects aim to eliminate waste from wastewater

The demand for water treatment is increasing throughout the world – and so is the risk of waste. Today, water treatment processes aim to protect the environment from contaminants, while recycling all parts of the wastewater. “Requirements are constantly being tightened due to water shortages”, says KTH alum Östen Ekengren, who is senior advisor at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute.


- Openness gives better products

KTH and Saab have a mutual interest – to develop the software of the future. This is the purpose of the cooperation project CASTOR, a software technology research centre at KTH.

Lifelong learning pilot for Scania employees

New technologies demand new kinds of competence. “Scania and KTH want new ways of working together, so this was initiated by both parties,” says Johanna Strömgren, responsible for Lifelong Learning at School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM) at KTH about the pilot.
