Industrial collaboration

Collaboration and interaction with industry is an important part of the activities at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience - MC2. MC2 is therefore constantly seeking for new strategic alliances with industrial partners where a matching between our research and industrial needs can be identified.​


Industrial collaboration is an integral and important factor in many of our projects.
Our industrial collaboration follows several different models:
  • Industrial PhD students and adjunct research staff
  • Collaborative research, co-financed by industry, Chalmers and public funding agencies
  • Creation of spin-off companies, based on our research results
  • Industrially funded research
  • Sales of service, consultancy and access to our research infrastructures
  • Various forms of in-kind collaboration
