We contribute to the development of society through researchers' participation in the media and investigations and by collaborating with other universities, businesses and the public sector. Collaboration also provides nourishment for new ideas in research and education.

Collaborating with companies can lead to a new business, a new focus or the beginning of something bigger. Various companies also finance our industrial doctoral students. We work with leading companies such as Accenture, Ericsson, Getinge, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, Scania, and Spotify. Our ongoing research projects are within Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Business Process Management and Enterprise Modeling, and Cyber Security. The links below lead to examples.

Our collaborations with organizations and networks aim to create and look after common interests. For example, we collaborate with the Swedish Public Health Agency on Artificial Intelligence and simulation of pandemics. Other collaborating actors are the Swedish Public Employment Service and the Swedish Information Systems Management Academy.


Collaborations with public activities will lead to digital solutions that improve and facilitate everyday life for those living and working in the Stockholm region. For example, we collaborate with the Stockholm Region and the City of Stockholm.


By collaborating with research institutes, such as Rise Research Institutes of Sweden and the Karolinska Institute, we contribute to a competitive business life and a sustainable society. The links below lead to examples.
