• Industry Day on the need and utilization of research

    Chronicle · Moris Behnam, professor of computer science and head of research at Mälardalen University · 31 May 2021

    The industry is increasingly strengthened by digital services and solutions, if not as fast as in other parts of society. One of the challenges is to find technical solutions that work together with existing processes and with the already existing range of machines and other equipment. It is a complex act of balance that requires many different skills.

    Our vision for Industry Day on the 7th of September is that industrial companies will be given the opportunity to present their needs and challenges while researchers show what solutions are available and what is underway. An informal discussion that can give rise to new contacts and future research issues.
