SEK 46 million for research into fossil-free steel

The biggest research collaboration in Sweden to date between the academic world, institutions, and industry on advanced, fossil-free steel manufacture and production is now starting. This investment, in total 46 million SEK, is intended to accelerate the green transition and the Swedish steel industry’s target of zero carbon dioxide emissions. Luleå University of Technology, the metal research institution Swerim and SSAB are collaborating in this new project.

The university collaborates with MAX IV in a unique educational program

A new intersectoral and interdisciplinary project between nine Swedish Universities and MAX IV – a Ph.D. programme called PRISMAS – launches in January 2023. The program is dedicated to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Horizon Europe's essential research and innovation areas. The project will create a connected network of next-generation X-ray experts, enabling various stakeholders to take full advantage of world-leading synchrotron facilities such as MAX IV, while tackling current societal challenges in the same breath.
