Research centers and other networks
Commitment to a center formation is a good alternative for companies that want to work more long-term with research. Here it is possible to propose and run research projects that require more focused investments. Engaging in a center formation leads to both long-term knowledge building within a relevant subject area and a well-developed network of contacts.
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering runs or participates in several research centers and other larger collaborations within and outside Uppsala University:
Centre for Renewable Electrical Power onversion (in Swedish)
