Mälardalen University (MDH) and industry in Västmanland are now making vigorous efforts to strengthen their competitive power, thus keeping the manufacturing industry within the region as well as within Sweden. A few days ago the University was granted an eight-year long research project, half of which is funded by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation (KKS), and half by a group of companies, including ABB, Bombardier and Volvo.
For the fourth year in succession students from Mälardalen University (MDH) won a first prize during Euroweek, an international project competition in which representatives from 19 countries participate.
