Joint research projects

SICS has provided customized research to the Swedish industry for three decades. Virtually all research at SICS is carried out in cooperation with industry. Projects vary in size, but they all typically try to solve a problem or explore a new area within the company's core business. Most of the time, the actual research is carried out in direct collaboration with people from the participating companies or organizations. Consequently, probability is high that any new insights and results are actually exploited by the participating organizations.

A large part of the research is conducted in projects with public funding or partly funded by EU programs. SICS is active in all relevant EU programs and coordinates a number of EU projects.

From research results to commercialization

Commercialization of research results is an integrated part of the activities at SICS. The exploitation of the results emphasizes and proves the relevance of our research and, directly or indirectly, creates commercial value for our partners and the industry as a whole.

We promote commercialization both on our own and in partnership with industry. SICS cooperates with several innovation system actors, such as Innovationsbron, to develop and strengthen the role of the research institutes in the innovation system.

Publicly available software

Most software development in SICS research projects stops at the research prototype or proof-of-concept stage. Typically, further development to reach a stable product is done by the industry partners. However, on occasion SICS does develop and make available software directly to interested parties. In this case, it is most often done by releasing the software as open source but SICS also has the option to provide software on a commercial basis, as is the case with the widely spread SICStus Prolog. See complete list of publicly available SICS software.

 

Spin-off companies

Over the years, many new companies have been started based on SICS research. This is a very efficient way to make use of new findings and contribute to the competitive strength of Swedish industry. See complete list of SICS spin-off companies.
