Fees and funding for R&D
KTH Live In Lab offers a unique opportunity for co-financing between academia, business and community.
We have a large network of interested companies and organizations where a number are willing to go in as financiers in various research and development projects.
By working with KTH Live-In Lab, companies can double the value of corporate R&D. This is done by applying for funding for R&D together with KTH (and possibly more companies / institutions) and use internal costs (time, material, etc.) as co-financing. Companies acquire knowledge without having to hire external competence. KTH can assist in coordinating the initial application process or support external applicants to the extent necessary. There are also synergies between different projects.
We encourage everyone to submit an application so we can begin finding partners, financing opportunities and start planning in order to be able to install the products, sensors or other technical equipment required to enable testing and research related to your project.
