Collaboration with industry, organisations and the public sector characterise the majority of Area of Advance Transport's activities. Through close interaction with society, conditions for sustainable development, both locally and globally, are built.
Collaboration between academia and industry enhances the exchange of knowledge in both directions. Chalmers has long-term agreements with large companies and organisations, and the researchers collaborate with a large number of companies where the majority is involved in several projects. Chalmers' researchers are also involved in private and public organisations, both national and international, to support in setting policies and standards. Collaborations with Science Parks, the School of Entrepreneurship and other actors within Chalmers' innovation system creates a starting point for different types of efforts.
The research centres facilitate and coordinate collaboration between academy and industry. In order to further enhance the impact of research on society, Chalmers develop additional platforms of interaction with industry and society as well as new ways of stimulating innovation to foster new transport solutions.
Transport Area of Advance is host of three of Chalmers’ strategic partnerships. The partnerships promote long-standing collaborations between Chalmers, industry and organisations, through research, competence provisioning, technology development and innovation. As the partnerships entail collaboration between top level managements, the partners are able to address joint priorities and form common agendas.
