International Research Programmes

Swerea  participates in European research collaboration programs through contribution in research agendas and  road-maps . We are active  within  a number of technical platforms and are members in a number of research groups linked to Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and Joint Technology Initiatives.

Through different collaboration projects and networks we can impact the orientation of EU projects within Horizon 2020, in which Swerea coordinates and participates in several projects. International research is an important part in monitoring trends and development and opens up possibilites for our member companies to collaborate with European industry to find solutions to different issues.
