Who we are

A wide range of expertise, united to take on the challenge of sustainable production.

The main group of production researchers at Chalmers gathered for joint discussions.

Chalmers Production is a platform for research in manufacturing, production systems and product development with sustainability and future smart factories as common challenges. Our philosophy is to influence early in the development process where many small improvements make great benefits in the end.​

The Production Area of Advance congregates more than half of all Chalmers departments, five research centres and three other closely linked research environments, 25 research groups and a network of collaborating industries. Our research is fundamentally based on science in mathematics, physics and/or chemistry.

Currently over 200 researchers are involved in Chalmers Production Area of Advance and they represent the following departments:

Vision and Mission

Our vision is sustainable and innovative production, with respect to economical, ecological and social aspects — where industries, environment and members of society all benefit.

Our mission is to achieve excellence in scientific research and development — supporting sustainable and innovative production through knowledge, methods and tools.

This is realised by creating:

  • Development processes for innovative and competitive product and production systems, based on a life-cycle perspective.
  • Optimized production systems and manufacturing processes.
  • Minimized environmental impact through reduced waste of energy and natural resources.
  • Safe, healthy, and rewarding work environments.
  • World-class education in sustainable production.


Chalmers has been a leading provider of research, education and innovation in the area of Production Engineering since the 1960’s. We have continuously provided national and global industries with high-quality research results and engineers, supporting manufacturing companies like Volvo, SKF, SAAB, Sandvik, Ericsson and others, in their global competition.​
