Society and Industry

​Chalmers not only stands for excellence in research and education, we also create meeting places for academia, society and industry. In close cooperation, we establish the conditions for sustainable development, both locally and globally.
 
It is not enough to simply train competent engineers and architects and achieve good research results. We must also stimulate entrepreneurs and develop ideas in order for society and enterprise to grow. Chalmers has an innovation system that helps researchers to discover opportunities for development within their own research, convert ideas into business and take care of patents and other immaterial rights. Strategic cooperation agreements strengthen ties to our industrial partners. We also want to help decision makers by providing reliable and easy-to-grasp data in order to facilitate the change to a sustainable society.
