Providing answers to society’s challenges
ELLIIT researchers are active partners in regional, national and international collaboration with stakeholders such as municipalities, health authourities and schools. This enables not only robust transfer of knowledge and research findings to the wider society but also ensures a supply of highly skilled new talents. In return, external stakeholders provide insight on societal issues and can facilitate identification of relevant research problems. ELLIIT researchers frequently participate as experts in regional, national and international bodies such as international expert panels, government inquiries, and sector and business councils.
Many innovative solutions for societal challenges have been proposed by ELLIIT researchers. Great examples to be read in the ELLIIT Success stories are technology for social robots for increasing peoples well-being and the IVA 100-list awarded research on mathematic modeling of the covid-19 dynamics.
