Transportation

Car pool with hydrogen cars launched at KTH

Now all KTH employees who want to drive a hydrogen-powered electric car can do just that. On KTH Campus, there are five Toyota Mirai that can be used via the KINTO app – both for work and privately. The new Mirai is the second generation of Toyota's fuel cell car. The tanks hold 5.6 kilograms of hydrogen, take five minutes to refuel and, according to the company, the car has a range of up to 600 kilometers.

The fact that the first new hydrogen cars ended up at KTH is due to an initiative from Göran Lindbergh, professor in applied electrochemistry.

Research

How to reach out with your research

Three researchers at KTH share their own experiences of disseminating their research findings, and they advise on strategies and channels to gain many citations.

"To gain a large number of citations, you need to have something interesting to say, and you need to do this in a way that the public can understand and believe in," says professor Björn Palm.

IT

Long delivery time on laptops and monitors

At the moment, it can take a long time to get a new computer, monitor or other IT product due to the lack of materials that prevails internationally. The forecast is that this will continue during the remainder of 2021 and probably also during parts of 2022.
