Intelligent industrial processes

A versatile and competitive industry is important for Sweden’s and Europe’s future status as new players are emerging.To secure our position, constant improvement and development of industrial processes are required in order to increase productivity while reducing the pressures on the climate and the environment.

A key area is ProcessIT (or Process industrial automation) in which several Swedish companies are world leaders in its development, delivery and application.The area is very important in order to maintain and further develop a competitive national process industry.The area constitutes a global market with growth potential for SMEs through which they can grow by developing and commercialising innovations via corporate, university and divisional collaborations.
Luleå University of Technology is leading in Sweden within the area of rendering more efficient basic industries and other industries using information and communication technology, so-called ProcessIT. To establish ourselves as a player on the European stage, we make use of our multidisciplinary strengths and the networks within which we have a leading position.
