KTH Holding

The role of the holding company in research collaboration.

The university has a holding company, KTH Holding. It can act as owner or ad­ministrator of research results in cases where it is considered inappropriate or impractical that the researcher has this role. KTH Holding is thereby the recipi­ent of research results until they have been able to be transferred to a collabo­rative party or otherwise granted in as­sociation with a research project. This is primarily done in research centres or larger research projects with several parties where this solution is able to simplify the management of research results produced at the university. For KTH Holding to be involved, financing of associated costs is required. For ex­ample, via the project budget or as a fee from licensing or transfer costs.
