Jul 11, 2017 | Research/Cooperation Global
Mälardalen University (MDH) together with the Alfred Nobel Science Park and MITC AB has been granted over 16 million SEK for the TransMission project. The purpose of the three-year project is to overcome the challenges facing the automotive industry in the technology shift towards electric vehicles.
The project, together with companies in the automotive industry, will be investigating the opportunities for development in automation, digitalisation, autonomy and electric drive. On the agenda is trendspotting, which will give the companies training in and the tools for development areas for new ventures based on the needs they themselves identify.
The project builds on previous surveys which have identified a great need for efforts to assure the continued success of companies in the automotive industry and their skills supply. The private sector’s participation is strong, and a big focus is placed on cooperation between academia and the private and public sectors.
