Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (Sweden)
KTH is responsible for one third of Sweden’s capacity for technical research and is the country’s largest organizer of technical/engineering education at university level. KTH is organized into five Schools, each covering a major field of engineering science. KTH education and research cover a broad spectrum – from natural sciences to all branches of engineering plus architecture, industrial economics, urban planning, work science and environmental technology. In addition to the research carried out by KTH’s Schools, a large number of national Competence Centers are located at KTH. Various research foundations also finance a number of research programs.
There are 13 300 full year-equivalent undergraduate students, almost 1 800 active research students and 3 650 full time-equivalent employees.
KTH is at present involved in 158 ongoing Horizon 2020 projects, including 23 ERC projects and 30 MSCA projects. KTH coordinates 8 collaborative projects. Extensive support exists at KTH to assist coordinators.
KTH is a lead partner in two programme areas within the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT): InnoEnergy and EIT Digital, and is a partner in EIT Health and Raw Materials.
The Division of Nuclear Engineering currently employs 13 PhD students and 13 senior scientists. The division is currently involved in nine large H2020 projects, the research being focused on diverse areas, including: radiation damage; advanced fuel development; design and safety analysis of Generation-IV reactors; development of computational tools for safety-informed design of Generation-IV fast reactors.
