Research programmes and networks

Swerim manage several research programmes and networks. By gathering different players with interests in the same research area, we are able to find efficient solutions to joint challenges. Many research projects are initiated through collaborative research programmes or networks.

Within our research programmes we create regular networking opportunities for partners in industry, public administrations, materials suppliers and researchers. This includes project meetings, seminars, conferences and courses.

Our networks is a founding piece of our good relations with the industry sector. The networks engage hundreds of companies, large and small, from different sectors and industries. Joining a network means increased possibilities, expanded network and access to the recent updates on knowledge and know-how.
