Resource-smart Processes Kick-Off

Welcome to the Kick-off of Resource-smart Processes! 

Due to the current situation the kick-off will be held online

Join our conference on January 12 to learn more about the Resource-smart Processes Industrial Graduate School and its visions, and get to know the researchers and industrial partners that are involved! 

Resource-smart Processes aims at strengthening the competitiveness of the Swedish industry through new research results, new competence through education and rejuvenation, and to expand professional networks in industry and academia. In November 2020, the call for PhD and post-doc projects for resource-smart industrial processes within BioInnovation opened for application. Today, the initiative includes 11 granted projects which will present at the kick-off.

The graduate school is a national initiative and is funded by participating industry, academia and Vinnova through the strategic innovation program BioInnovation.
