Purpose and goal

The project involved the migration with the aim to strengthen the experience trough a collaboration with Jönköping University (JU). The cooperation has strengthened the knowledge within materials, microanalysis and industrial in-situ techniques for melted metal characterization. The project has generated research based on both individual trials, but also the supervision of diploma workers and research students. The aim of the project - to reach a new level of collaboration between Bryne and organisation has succeeded.

The initiative has attracted smaller family-owned manufacturing companies that were not previously part of the research. The result is three initiated project which has led to three research applications where one has so far been granted. A new forum in the field of smelting technology and material quality has been initiated and planned.
