Chalmers AI Research Centre

A future world-class hub for research, education, and innovation in artificial intelligence.

The Chalmers AI Research Centre (CHAIR) will significantly increase Chalmers’ expertise and excellence in AI. Through close collaboration with industry, we’ll build a strong regional ecosystem of AI research and industrial applications.

Chalmers conducts excellent research into transport, automation, systems and software. These are all areas where AI is already used or could be applied. Combining these efforts with AI research and using our collaborations with industry will make us into an outstanding centre for applied AI.


We’ll recruit internationally acclaimed experts and rising stars, create an AI PhD school and conduct cutting-edge collaborative projects that benefit industry and society. We’ll also bring together Chalmers researchers from different research areas to support educational efforts in AI.

The Centre is funded by Chalmers Foundation and is open to collaborations with industry and the public sector.

Together we can do more

We’re currently teaming up with selected core partners from industry and the public sector. These partners will be able to influence the Centre’s strategic development, use its research results and benefit from its wider network.The Centre will also offer partnerships to companies wanting to join specific research projects.

We’ll strengthen Swedish AI excellence and competitiveness in close cooperation with other AI initiatives. These include Wallenberg Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous System and Software Program (WASP), AI Competence for Sweden and AI Innovation of Sweden.
