Academia collaborations

In close collaboration, we exchange competence and pick up new trends and technologies. The joint research results influence education and world class development.


KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH ACCESS Linnaeus Centre

ACCESS - Autonomic Complex Communication nEtworks, Signals and Systems - has enabled KTH to bring together 160 researchers from Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics in order to carry out long-term interdisciplinary research and joint PhD education on complex networked communication systems. ACCESS is one of northern Europe's largest research centres for future networked systems. Researchers, in collaboration with industry partners, study the fundamental ramifications and engineering principles of the expanding reliance on information and communications technology worldwide for designing self-managed and scalable communication networks in which applications may share real-time information and cooperate in an efficient, affordable, and reliable manner.


Wireless@KTH is one of Europe’s leading research centers in wireless communications. The center was founded in the year 2001. It is an interdisciplinary research center that connects more than 50 researchers in the areas of radio-, data- and telecommunications, with researchers focused on mobile services, devices and tele-economics. The center is strongly supported by the VINNOVA Industry Excellence initiative.

Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL)

ITRL is responding to the need for long-term multidisciplinary research cooperation to tackle the global environmental transport challenges by means of radically new and holistic technical solutions. The approach is that seamless transport services, infrastructure, novel vehicle concepts, business models and policies, all need to be tuned and optimized in chorus.

Chalmers University of Technology

The GigaHertz Centre

The GigaHertz Centre (GHz Centre) is a joint research and innovation centre between Chalmers University of Technology and industrial partners. The mission of GHz Centre is to carry out collaborative leading research in selected high-frequency technologies and to bring the results from Chalmers to an industrial exploitation phase primarily through its company partners. GHz Centre is part of the VINN Excellence Centre program run year 2007-2016 by the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA).

Chase Centre

The Chalmers Antenna Systems Excellence Centre (Chase Centre) is a consortium between Chalmers University of Technology and a number of industrial partners. Chase started in the beginning of 2007 and is oriented towards applied research and the projects are chosen based on industrial needs, usefulness for society and global sustainability. All partners invest resources in the centre and the projects should lead to products and opportunities of employment.

Software Center

The Software Center is operated in close collaboration between academia and industry to accelerate the adoption of novel approaches to software engineering. The Software Center opened officially in 2012 and is led by the director Professor Jan Bosch. Software engineering is a critical core capability where best practice are changing rapidly. The research within Software Center is driven by the needs from the industry and is largely funded by the participating companies.


Lund University

Strategic partnership

Ericsson has entered a new strategic partnership with Lund University in Sweden to pursue shared research interests, enrich education, and drive development and technology innovation. Technology experts from Ericsson with leading researchers and students from Lund University, will form a platform for long-term strategic engagement.

System Design on Silicon (SOS)

The Industrial Excellence Center in System Design on Silicon (SoS) has been active since 2008. The center has both academic production and technology transfer and covers four areas of circuit design: RF/analog, mixed-signal, digital, and emerging technologies.. Research projects are planned with the industrial partners, and new ideas are continuously conceived, exchanged, and evolved.


Linköping University

Wallenberg Autonomous Systems Program (WASP)

WASP is a large Sweden based research program, that provides a platform for academic research and education, fostering interaction with leading technology companies. The program addresses research on autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems. Software is the main enabler in autonomous systems, and is an integrated research theme of the program.

The research program WASP is the combined existing world-leading competence in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science at Sweden's four major ICT universities: Chalmers University of Technology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Linköping University, and Lund University. Linköping University is the host university for the program.
