SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden is an essential resource for Sweden’s future. As a centre for research and innovation, we make a vital contribution to the competitiveness of the business sector, and to the creation of a sound environment and a sustainable society. Our base is primarily national, but our work is becoming increasingly international in client assignments and projects.

Our work is needs-orientated, with a holistic approach and interdisciplinary cooperation through our various core areas. We offer industry-specific access to the Group’s collective expertise and resources for innovative problem-solving and technical development.

International cooperation

Our expertise in the development and evaluation of technology, materials, products and processes is competitive at an international level. With our strong research environment, we represent a significant knowledge resource and continue to develop by taking part in research programs and partnerships with universities and institutes, both in Sweden and abroad.

Links between the academic and business sectors

Most of our research is of an applied nature, and we represent an important link between academic research and the business sector’s requirement for application. We share our knowledge through projects, courses, seminars, conferences and networks.
SP is a growing company, and we work continuously to create broader customer benefits. Our continued success is based on three strengths: our expertise, our technical breadth and close collaboration with clients.
