International projects

Swerea is currently participating in more than 80 EU projects, 22 of which we are leading. EU projects promote development in various sectors of society and are wholly or partly funded via EU programmes. In these projects, we normally collaborate with companies and other research organisations in Europe.

Below we are listing a selection of current EU-projects, in alphabetic order. 

CIRCit - Circular economy in nordic industry
The Circit project aiming to integrate circular economy in the nordic industry for enhanced sustainability and competitiveness. The project runs 2017-2020.

FAMEC (Failure analysis and damage mechanisms of newly developed, gamma-prime strengthened Ni - based superalloy)
Reduced fuel consumption and emissions from jet motors is a prioritised area of development within the aircraft industry. The FAMEC project contributes through research and development of lighter and more efficient constructions of turbine components.

JOINOX - Guidelines for use of welded stainless steel in corrosive environments
JOINOX is a 3.5 year project sponsored by the Research fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS). The aim of this project is to develop a scientifically based guideline to determine fitness for purpose weld oxide surface and suggest appropriate post-weld cleaning strategies.

SMARTER-SI - Smarter Access to Manufacturing for Systems Integration
EU project SMARTER-SI will test a new production platform for micro systems that offer SMEs and "mid-cap" companies help to manufacture small and medium volumes. During the next three years the goal is to build up and testing the platform model. The project is coordinated by HSG-IMIT - Institute for Micro and Information Technology in Villingen-Schwenningen.

STEPWISE
STEPWISE is a solid sorption technology for CO2 capture from fuel gases in combination with water-gas shift and acid gas removal. The main objectives of the STEPWISE project is to scale up the technology for the CO2 capture from Blast Furnace Gases (BFG). This will be done by the construction and the operation of a pilot test installation at Swerea MEFOS enabling the technology to reach TRL6 as the next step in the research, development and demonstration trajectory.

SUPFES
The SUPFES project takes a holistic view on the use of the fluorinated chemicals in the textile industry studying emissions, life cycles and human and aquatic toxicity.
