Prominent funding agencies for KTH

Individual or collaboration project?

Individual, national research projects are run by the schools at KTH and the applications are handled by the research leaders themselves.

Collaboration projects may be a partnership with industry, the public sector, or other universities or academic institutions.

In collaboration agreements, KTH should have partner status. It is therefore important that you contact RSO early in the planning phase of a collaboration project.
