ICT Innovation


Many of today's key issues involve perspectives of ICT such as the ability to deal with climate change, faster and cheaper communication between people, enhanced security and privacy, community services in the public sector, to name a few.

The Area of Advance ICT at Chalmers encompasses some of the strongest international groups who collaborate in long-term research with industrial partners.  Successful innovation in the area at Chalmers is shown by a proven track record in spinning off businesses from our research, currently employing more than 700 people at different companies.

The ICT Area of Advance contributes to a sustainable development, not only on a national level but globally. Here you can read some examples of how our research is relevant for UN’s goals for sustainable development.

The innovation arena at Chalmers is represented by a manifold of organisations such as incubator, institutes, venture capital and entrepreneurial schools, most of them supporting spin off companies.
