MedTech West is a joint venture and was founded in 2009 by Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg University, University of Borås, Västra Götalandsregionen, and Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
Chalmers Innovation Office supports utilisation of academic research by providing professional and free support and advice to individuals and different research groups at Chalmers regarding innovation and utilisation.
Chalmers AI Research Centre aim is to increase Chalmers’ expertise and excellence in artificial intelligence. Through close collaboration with industry, CHAIR is building a strong regional ecosystem of AI research and industrial applications by bringing together Chalmers researchers from different research areas to support educational efforts in AI. The Centre is funded by Chalmers Foundation and is open to collaborations with industry and the public sector.
The Health Engineering Area of Advance at Chalmers supports the development of new technology and innovative solutions that enable research to help solve health challenges in society, in line with the UN’s global Sustainable Development Goals.
The goals for the 2030 Agenda can only be achieved by stimulating collaboration with actors at international, national, regional and local levels. Utilisation of new technology and knowledge and development of new innovations can take place via arenas that act as catalysts for multidisciplinary collaborations.
WiSE – Women In Science Network is a supportive network aiming to inspire and encourage collaboration between women in academia. The network is hosted and financially supported by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. The target group for the activities arranged by WiSE is primarily researchers at Chalmers and researchers in MedTech West.
WiSE´s vision is equal opportunities for women and men to qualify for positions, and to make a career in academia. WiSE aims at providing a dynamic and inspiring network, and to motivate women who want to move forward in their academic careers and want to share their experiences in doing so.
National and international senior female researchers are invited by WiSE to hold seminars and to serve as role models. About ten lunch seminars are organised every year. The seminars are open to everyone with an interest in learning from female role models within academia. Especially welcome are participants from Chalmers, MedTech West, University of Gothenburg, Sahlgrenska Academy, and University of Borås.
The network was founded in 2011, as part of the EU project “Female role models and partners”, primarily focusing on researchers in medical engineering at Chalmers and MedTech West.
