Chalmers well represented in IVA's 100 list 2021

Antibiotic resistance, diagnosis of infections, battery technologies and mRNA-based medicines – just some of the Chalmers projects featured in the annual 100-list from the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA).
The 100-list highlights up-to-date research with business potential from Swedish universities. The theme for 2021 is Sustainable Crisis Preparedness, and eleven Chalmers researchers have been selected. The researchers have contributed with research projects that offer great value and potential for utilisation for society,
through avenues such as industrial commercialisation, business development or other types of impact

“I am delighted that we have such a good representation in the IVA-list  this year as well. Chalmers has a long tradition of utilisation and innovation,” says Fredrik Hörstedt, Vice President of Utilisation at Chalmers University of Technology. "For Chalmers it is natural that the research also has an impact on wider society and creates value for society."
