VINN Excellence Centre for 10 years
Since the start in 2001, Wingquist Laboratory has attracted approximately 500 MSEK in public funding and over the double in industrial in-kind contribution.
After becoming a VINN Excellence Centre in 2007, the centre has produced 92 journal publications, 228 conference publications, 50 PhD theses and a large number of industrial evaluations, where 35 have reached industrial implementation. There are 11 industrial partners connected to the centre. One of these is a spinoff company, IPS Sweden AB, formed to commercialize research results.
Wingquist Laboratory is today a well-established centre that has gone through a number of refinements after evaluations in the Vinnova VINN Excellence program.
