Competence hub - initiated by the program

The purpose of the competence hub is to create national coordination to make it easier to find competence in these areas of focus and effort, thereby facilitating problem solving and collaborations. The competence hub has the task of, besides having own knowledge, also knowing which others who have cutting edge knowledge in the field and creating collaboration - to be just one hub. All to strengthen innovation, competitiveness and growth.

Competence hub for antenna, microwave and terahertz system

antenn-, mikrovåg- och terahertzsystemAntenna, microwave and terahertz systems (AMT) are an important electronics area for several Swedish industrial sectors such as telecom, defense, space, transport and medical technology. AMT enables wireless communication and sensors in the GHz range. Competence node AMT brings together Swedish stakeholders from component to system.

Competency hub for printed electronics


Printed Electronics is a growing technology area that is based on a class of organic materials which make it possible, for example, to utilize common printing methods that are currently used in printing on paper, cardboard and plastic to manufacture electronic and bio-electronic components and systems.

Competence hub Photonics

fotonikOptics – is the science that deals with the generation and reproduction of light – and which can be traced back to the scientific work of the sixteenth century by famous scientists. The term “photonics” can be defined as “engineering application of light”, which means the use of light to detect, transmit, store and process information, capture and display images, and generate energy.

Competence hub MicroNanoElectronic

mikronanoProducts and processes in society and industry are increasingly dependent on micro / nanoelectronics. One trend is, for example, that sensors communicate with each other and with the Internet, wirelessly and energy efficiently, for measuring and controlling industrial processes, or generally for adapting the environment to the needs of the human being, for the benefit of industry and society. The technology is revolutionized by new advanced materials such as the graph.

Competence hub Embedded Systems

The competence hub for embedded systems brings together contacts with a broad spectrum of knowledge to strengthen Swedish industry through collaboration. The hub gathers expertise in areas such as system integration, wireless technologies, built-in software, testing and more for a variety of applications of embedded systems.

Competence hub Construction method – Cross Connectbyggsatt-cross-connect

Electronic components and systems are a prerequisite for many products and services in the Swedish industry. Trends in recent years have been increased integration and use of innovative manufacturing methods such as 3D building methods, System-on-Chip, Network-on-Chip and printed electronics.

Competence hub Power electronics

The power electronics are today more current than ever. The reason is that sustainable development leads to increasing use of electrical energy. This increasing demand creates demands for electricity energy savings and more efficient use. This means more widespread use of power electronic systems and the necessity of high efficiency energy converter systems.

Competence hub Reliable electronics hardware

The rapid development of electronics hardware demands higher reliability knowledge in order to be able to ensure reliability early in the development process. Access to reliability expertise and resources for reliability testing will be crucial for the competitiveness of Swedish electronics companies.

Secondary skills hub

These are granted in order to primarily carry out the activities described in close cooperation with LTU – Competence hub for embedded systems and Mid Sweden University – Competence hub for MicroNanoElectronics

Competence hub built-in sensor system for health

The competence committee intends to strengthen the Swedish innovation system in electronic components and systems in the area of ​​focus and input of embedded systems and the market area of ​​medical technology / life science.
1. Create better knowledge transfer and collaboration in the value chains
2. Maintain and develop Swedish leading areas
3. Create safer supply of skills.

Competence hub with focus on integrated circuits and systems

integrerade kretsar och systemElectronic circuits and systems are important components for all areas of excellence within the Smart Electronics System program. In Sweden, competence for the design of integrated circuits and systems plays an important role in order to be able to miniaturize and generally make new solutions and products more efficient.
