We turn research into reality
Research and development is the foundation of our operations. It represents half of our total activity, alongside our commissioned work. With a wide range of expertise, we work across the entire field of sustainability and our research ranges from traditional environmental science to economics, behavioural science and social science.
IVL's different types of research programmes
IVL participates extensively in EU research programmes in the environment and energy field, and in regional collaboration programmes.
IVL leads and participates in a large number of research projects and programmes with Swedish funders, such as government agencies.
IVL's co-funded research programmes are a unique opportunity for companies to carry out research projects with funding from both state and private sectors.
Our test beds and research stations
IVL's test beds, pilot plants, research stations and demonstrators are important for testing, evaluating and driving development forward.
The societal benefits of research
Research on sustainability issues drives positive societal change. IVL turns science into reality, and includes the global goals in all our operations. Our starting point is that research and knowledge dissemination are the key to solving the challenges facing our world.
