Lightweight cars reduce climate impact from traffic

The SÅNÄTT project aimed at establishing novel collaborations when designing new ways of manufacturing cars with reduced vehicle weight and carbon footprint. Cooperation between stakeholders in the automobile industry and academia contributed to new knowledge and methods for product development.

COOL-Coverings: a range of nanotech coatings to improve Near Infrared (NIR) reflective properties of buildings

The COOL-Coverings project addressed a range of insulation solutions based on nanotechnology coatings. These coatings aim at improving the Near Infrared (NIR) reflective properties of construction materials, thereby improving the energy efficiency in buildings. A set of new materials was developed to be implemented into several construction components.
