Pre-study checks for cooperation with SME's
In support of stimulating cooperation with small and medium-sized enterprises (SME's), researchers/teachers at KTH may apply for compensation to initiate projects with SME's. KTH Business Liaison (KTH Näringslivssamverkan) then replaces the school for the project with agreed amount (up to a maximum of SEK 50,000 excluding OH) which covers the costs incurred by the school for the implementation of the preliminary study. This may, for example, regard time, travel allowance or utilization of lab equipment.
The pre-study check program has an annual budget and is activated on a regular basis during each calendar year, so there is a reservation for that the funds may expire during the current year. You are welcome to apply if you are in contact with a SME and want to start or develop collaborations,
