Strategic research initiatives include collaborations in research areas with several of KTH's schools and departments. They often include external partners, for example, universities, research institutes, companies, or organisations.
I need of assistance?
There is a group in the professional support that is dedicated to this area.
KTH's strategic research initiatives operate over an extended period and usually involve several research projects or the implementation of a larger overall research programme. They can also be created to emphasise one specific research area and increase the degree of interdisciplinary research.
Major research infrastructure, where KTH is the host or part, can also be considered a strategic infrastructure. These are open to researchers at KTH and sometimes to external users.
KTH's strategic initiatives include:
Strategic Research Areas (SRA)
European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)
Strategic Innovation Programmes (SIP).
European Institute of Innovation and Technology
KTH is part of five consortia within the EU-funded European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) initiative: Digital, InnoEnergy, Raw Materials, Helath and Urban Mobility. They are set up to strengthen European competitiveness and make Europe a global leader of innovation.
There are between 50 to 60 research centres at KTH. They are mainly a collaboration between academia, industry and society to focus on a specific research area. Centres are often the result of a current societal challenge that need multi discplinary approaches.
KTH is home to a large amount of labs and infrastructures to be used for research, both by researchers internally and external parties. KTH divides its infrastructures into established, national and other research environments. If you want to use one of the these in your research, contact the environment's director.
Strategic Innovation Partnership (SIP) programmes bring together leading actors from academia and the private and public sectors to highlight and define areas where they see a need for joint initiatives and a mustering of forces in Sweden.
KTH has six research platforms: Digitalisation, Energy, Industrial Transformation, Materials, Life Science and Transport. They are virtual units that bring together research groups and research initiatives in the same area - from all over KTH.
