Society and industry

Collaboration with industry, organisations and the public sector characterize the majority of our activities. Through close interaction with society we build the conditions for sustainable development, both locally and globally.

Collaboration between academia and industry enhances the exchange of knowledge in both directions. Chalmers has strategic long-term agreements with several large companies and organisations, and our researchers collaborate with hundreds of companies where the majority are involved in several projects. Numerous of Sweden’s leading companies as well as international companies utilize our research results.

Our senior researchers are involved in private and public organisations, both national and international, to support in setting policies and standards. Collaboration with Science Parks, the School of Entrepreneurship and other actors in the innovation system to which Chalmers is linked creates a starting point for these efforts.

The research centres facilitate and coordinate collaboration between academic researchers and industry.
In order to further enhance the impact of our research on society, we develop additional platforms of interaction with industry and society as well as new ways of stimulating innovation to foster new transport solutions.

In the project DenCity, a number of partners from private and public sector collaborate with Chalmers in developing innovative solutions for sustainable passenger and freight mobility in dense neighborhoods.
