Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration August 2017 - February 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

In August 2017, Swedish Universities of the Built Environment (SBU) accepted a commission from InfraSweden2030 (or formally from Vinnova Sweden’s Innovation Agency) to develop more distinct descriptions of the subject field, the most recent R&D fronts, and the most important sub-areas within all five focus areas.

Expected effects and result

The work was started with a workshop that was organised in connection to SBU’s August conference on Bäckaskog castle in Skåne. The results from the workshop, totally 39 proposals, at least five per focus area, are summarized in Annex 1. The major part of the work has been carried out by totally eight teachers at the four universities. 17 sub-areas have been identified within the five focus areas. The distribution of the sub-areas among the focus areas mirrors SBU’s composition. Focus area No. 5 is, e.g., very important for three theme groups . The report contains 82 references totally.

Planned approach and implementation

The work was started with a workshop that was organised in connection to SBU’s August conference on Bäckaskog castle in Skåne. The results from the workshop totally 39 proposals, at least five per focus area are summarized in Annex 1. The major part of the work has been carried out by totally eight teachers at the four universities taking part in SBU, i.e., Chalmers Technical University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lund University Faculty of Engineering, and Luleå Technical University.
