Seafarm – Macro algae

• Need to find alternative ways to produce energy and materials

than using fossil resources.

• Algae is being upgraded from an environmental problem to a

valuable natural resource and raw material.

• Technology making algae blooms a source of energy, food,

medicine and more.

• The goal is to use the full potential

of the algae.
Urbanization and climate
• By 2030, the world’s urban population will increase by another 2
• The extent and impact of such rapid urbanization have received
relatively little scientific study.
• KTH-researchers have developed a technique for quick, simple
and cost-effective mapping of worldwide urban growth and its
environmental impact.
Transport in smart cities

• Personal Transport Advisor: an integrated

platform of mobility patterns for Smart
Cities to enable demand-adaptive
transportation system

• Make it possible for travellers to make

travel priorities and choice for route
and modality.
Rational training. Scientific methods of
exercise in cross country skiing

The aim is to study the ways in which scientific training methods have been
created and motivated, 1940 – 1970. What impact these methods have had
among the athletes and coaches in elite cross country skiing.

• When, where and how were scientific training methods introduced?

• What purpose did the researchers have to pursue this direction of research?
• How did the scientific results affect the practice of elite cross country skiers
and coaches?
• How did scientists and practitioners follow up and secure the results of
scientific training?
Moving a city – Exemple of co-operation

Göran Cars, Professor in Urban Planning, is working with the

Kiruna city transformation. The mine beneath the city is
causing the formation of fissures, which is why parts of the
city are being moved 3 km to the east.

Several experts in real estate economics,

land law and urban planning from
the School of Architecture and the
Built Environment have participated in the

Systematic cooperation with the business sector and society

is a priority area.

• The school has har 18 adjunct professors.

• Samhällsbyggnadslänken. A forum for co-operation

between academia and the business and the public sector.

• Strategic partnership with Skanska. To raise the quality of

our research and education programmes.
On the agenda

Management programme
