Creaternity – sustainable material use in a connected and circular economy

The transition to a sustainable industry provides opportunities to think new and thus develop the whole society. The latest technology in artificial intelligence, telecommunications and sensor technology allows us to connect people, products and processes.

The research in the subject uses digitalisation to achieve a circular use of materials and efficent use of energy and thus a carbon dioxide- and resource-neutral society. By gathering researchers from a large number of subjects, we take a holistic approach to the industry's and societies's sustainability challenges, which leads to new innovations. We study the technology needed to follow a material through the circular flow, and how humans are affected. In Creaternity, we use the possibilities of digitalisation to achieve a circular use of materials.

Creaternity also has a graduate school where PhD students from all over Luleå University of Technology participate because it is important to create a holistic view in order to be able to tackle the sustainability challenges. The graduate school includes courses and other activities to provide doctoral students with knowledge and tools to be able to determine how the Earth's resources are used in the best way.
