KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH in Stockholm is the largest, oldest and most international technical university in Sweden, and frequently ranked as one of the 10 leading European Technical Universities. Education and research spans from natural sciences to all the branches of engineering and includes architecture, industrial management and urban planning. KTH is organised in 10 schools; Multidisciplinary Centres provide cross school collaboration and with external stakeholders. KTH is particularly strong in Cyber-Physical Systems, as manifested by its research centers on Autonomous systems, Control and Communications, Embedded systems, and in various application related domains such as transportation, health and manufacturing. KTH has set up strategic collaboration partnerships with industry such as ABB, Ericsson, SAAB, Sandvik and Scania, and with public bodies such as Stockholm city and Stockholm community council. KTH is a partner in EIT Digital, one of the European Knowledge and Innovation Communities, in the ARTEMIS Industrial Association and ECSEL. KTH is represented in the consortium through the Mechatronics and Embedded Control Systems division with expertise in CPS, systems engineering and CPS eco-systems. The division is with the Dept. of Machine Design of the school of Industrial engineering and management.

ICES – The KTH and Industry competence network in embedded and cyber-physical systems. Started in 2008, the ICES network now has 27 members, and is also a member in several other national networks, engaging a large number of industrial domains, large as well as SME companies. The networks specifically addresses challenges that are common across industrial domains and organises meetings, work groups and competence groups to address those challenges (www.ices.kth.se).
