Powertrain Manufacturing for Heavy Vehicles Application Lab
- a collaboration between KTH and Fraunhofer
The Powertrain Manufacturing for Heavy Vehicles Application Lab (PMH Application Lab) is a research center at KTH which is operated in collaboration with the German research organization Fraunhofer. The PMH Application Lab works in research and development for the improvement of technologies in the field of powertrain manufacturing for heavy vehicles on high technology readiness levels to strengthen the competence of the Swedish heavy vehicle industry in this area. This comprises project execution, project coordination and dissemination with the goal to validate technologies and to accelerate the transfer of these technologies into industrial application.
The PMH Application Lab executes R&D projects to transfer technologies into industrial application. The focus of activities of PMH Application Lab is R&D on high Technologies Readiness Levels (TRL ≥ 6).
The PMH Application Lab coordinates research and development projects. Especially this applies to the research activities of the PMH R&D Cluster but also public funded projects (EU, VINNOVA, ...) are coordinated by the PMH Application Lab.
The PMH Application Lab organizes education, dissemination and training in the focused research areas, e.g. by involving PhD students and undergraduate students in the project activities and by organizing seminars and training for students and industry professionals.
