BTH, the Knowledge Foundation and the eleven companies together contribute with 107 million SEK, which makes SERT one of the largest research projects ever at BTH.

– We see that Swedish companies have major challenges with the rapid developmet. We will therefore build a research environment together with our partners to solve real issues identified by us together with the companies, says professor Tony Gorschek, in charge of the new project.

One of the overall aims of BTH is to contribute in solving societal challenges in collaboration with business and industry and society.

On October 1st, all eleven companies met at the kick-off in Stockholm. The kick-off was held at Telia Company’s headquarters. The event gathered about 90 people and will include seminars and discussions to initiate the work.
