- Case stories
On behalf of Chalmers management, the Innovation offices actively participates and runs a variety of projects, which are linked to utilisation and collaboration – on a regional- and national level. Some assignments are shorter for instance contributing to evaluations. Below you will find information about some of the larger ongoing assignments.
The European organisation EIT (European Institution of Innovation and Technology) coordinates Europe's largest public-private innovation partnerships in climate cooperation , Climate - KIC. Innovation Office has been tasked to coordinate the work of Chalmers linked to Climate - KIC. For more information, see the project's own page.
The EIT (European Institution of Innovation and Technology) Raw Materials are working to support and promote innovation and drive business along the Raw Materials industries value chain. Chalmers Innovation Office are responsible coordinator for EIT Raw Materials programme at Chalmers. Previously, Chalmers are involved in five EIT Raw Materials KAVA (Key Added Value Activities) project, which involves researchers from PPU Department and Civil and Environmental engineering, as well as Chalmers Industriteknik and Chalmers Professional Education.
Since 2008, Chalmers and Göteborg University collaborates with other key players linked to universities, in Vinnova’s Key Actors Programme in a project named GoINN. Within the project, innovation advisors from both universities interact. The project ends in in 2016.
KLOSS AkUt (Akademi Ut) is a "spin-off”-project to KLOSS that started in the spring 2015 and includes 11 collaborating universities. The project is based on an identified need to increase the possibilities for teachers and researchers to be able to work, for a set period of time, in an organisation outside the university in order to gain inspiration for new collaborations and increase the overall knowledge of relevant issues and topics in the partner organisation.
Chalmers has a long tradition and vast experience in cooperation with the surrounding society. To further strengthen Chalmers' collaboration, there is a need to monitor and report collaboration results in qualitative terms. The Innovation office runs, with the help of financing from Vinnova, the MuCH- project - Modell för uppföljning och utveckling av samverkan vid Chalmers – during the period of 2015-2016.
Behind SACF, there are six Swedish universities that, through seminars and workshops, intend to develop international cooperation in education, research and utilization. Chalmers is one of the participating universities and the Innovation office participates in the visit to Brazil in spring 2016.
Vinnova has been commissioned by the government to develop a model for assessing universities' interaction with society, which is intended to be used in a future resource allocation model. In a test project, universities have been invited to test the model and contribute to its development. Chalmers' participation and initiative projects led by the Innovation office.
