Mistra's board just decided on a new research programme that will lead to smarter methods of planning, financing and organising the maintenance of municipal infrastructure focusing on water, sewers and roads. Through WaterCentre@KTH , researchers from different schools at KTH will gather in a multidisciplinary team within the programme.
The Memory of Understanding between KTH and Värmdö Municipality regarding a strategic partnership on education, research and innovation is now signed. During the first management dialogue the collaboration focused on a sustainable archipelago development, decentralised and individual water and sewage solutions, as well as technology and ecology in the marine environment.
The first step is now taken in establishing a national arena for marine research and innovation through a new collaboration between five main research actors and Lysekil municipality. An agreement has been signed to develop a unique research and innovation environment for blue growth under the name of Kristineberg Marine Research and Innovation Center.
Have you been engaged with questions such as health of the seas, the Arctic or technology and environment? Would you like to share your experiences and your knowledge and learn from others? This is for those who would like to be involved in contributing with ideas and plans on how to prevent climate change and work towards sustainability in the Nordic countries and Estonia.
From October 1, 2017, KTH participates in a new ‘Blue Growth‘ project called RETROUT which is funded by the EU INTERREG Baltic Sea Region Programme. This project aims to develop and promote the Baltic Sea Region as a coastal fishing tourism destination.
