Ongoing Research Projects

Aegis

Asthma is relatively common among the population in Sweden, but even more common among those who practice endurance training in the cold, such as cross-country skiers. Can the use of heat and...

AMPeRe

The AMPeRE Project, Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing, through multi-purpose post-PRocEssing, is a business-driven initiative focusing on post-processing, specifically for powder bed fusi...

Augmented Sports

Sports are constantly evolving and impose new demands on equipment and technology while creating opportunities to develop new sustainable products and services.

BioChange

BioChange will create conditions for companies to more easily change from fossil based plastics to more biobased plastics by offering quick comparative testing on the raw material before production.

Cold start

The project aims to develop a stable working methodology in order to be able to use the EBM process to repair details. But also utilize the process's properties, high energy and vacuum environment,...

Cruise control strategies in cross-country skiing

In all endurance sports, the choice of cruise control strategy is an important component of optimal performance where time gains can be achieved if the speed is adapted to terrain, wind resistance...

Parasport and inclusive exercise

People with physical and intellectual disabilities are less likely to participate in sport activities and are less physically active than their counterparts. This project aims to investigate...

Running downhill

Being able to keep high speed at steep downhill slopes when running outdoors is an important factor for performance in the terrain. However, research is sparse regarding the most effective running...

Safety systems for head injuries

With the help of a constructed surrogate head with many sensors, the researchers hope to gain knowledge of what is happening in the brain during trauma to the head. In this way, even better safety...

SELEKT AM

The project will increase the applicability and understanding of selective microstructure in additive manufacturing (AM). With the controlled environment offered by Electron Beam Melting technology...

TROJAM3DC

The project aims to establish the region of Jämtland / Härjedalen, Västernorrland and Tröndelag as one of Northern Europe's centers for additive manufacturing and strengthening companies in the...
