Research for knowledge
MDH’s research leads to necessary knowledge and development – for Swedish industry and welfare, but also to solve some of the global challenges. The greatest part of research is conducted in cooperation with the private and the public sectors.
Research to understand and meet crises
The Greek word krisis means a "turning point in a disease.” Crises can entail a number of challenges for those affected, but also opportunities. Researchers at Mälardalen University (MDH) are investigating how crises affect us as humans – knowledge that can be used to find the right tools for how we can deal with these in the best way and to come strengthened out of the crisis.about Research to understand and meet crises
AI project leads to better, safer and more sustainable consumer products
In the newly-started project AIDOaRT at MDH, Embedded Systems with artificial intelligence (AI) are being developed. This will lead to improvements for traffic and restaurants among other things – and ultimately also better and more sustainable products for us consumers.about AI project leads to better, safer and more sustainable consumer products
This is how MDH work with the sustainable development goals

Important to intercept mental ill-health in elderly men to prevent suicide
Elderly men are over-represented in suicide statistics, but despite this they seldom seek help for mental ill-health. Researchers at MDH, together with Karolinska Institutet, have made a study on mental ill-health in elderly men and have concluded that nurses in primary care play a key role in identifying mental ill-health among elderly men. To prevent suicide requires close cooperation among professionals and with the patients’ relatives.about Important to intercept mental ill-health in elderly men to prevent suicide
Research shows that we have become more productive during the pandemic
During the coronavirus pandemic, many workplaces have switched to working remotely, a transition that can be challenging for both employees and managers. At MDH, a research project group has investigated the experiences of both groups and the results of the feasibility study show that the majority believe that they have become more productive.about Research shows that we have become more productive during the pandemic
