Collaboration on research and development

There are many ways of collaborating on research and development. Examples include research centres and research projects, commissioned research, adjunct professors, industrial doctoral students and infrastructures and labs. Much of our research is very international in its nature, and many projects involve direct collaboration with groups at universities abroad. Many of Chalmers’ research projects are carried out in collaboration with other institutes of higher education and and/or public and private parties.

Via the departments

To contact researchers at a department, you can either contact them directly or via the Vice Head of Utilisation.

Across traditional disciplinary boundaries via the Areas
of Advance

Through our Areas of Advance, we bring together expertise from across our departments to tackle complex global societal challenges with other parties in society. If you are looking for partners in the fields of production, energy,  Information and Communication Technology, transport, nanotechnology, urban development, bioscience, life science or materials science, please contact our Areas of Advance to discuss your ideas.

Development projects via research institutes

Please contact our research institutes for specific projects and with clear problems which you need help from researchers to solve. Our projects vary in size and are both short-term and long-term.  The institutes do not publish scientific articles. They simply offer institutional support and supplement Chalmers Research. They operate under conditions of confidentiality if necessary.
