The annual conference Teknik & Tillväxt (Technology & Growth) is organised by KTH Företagssamverkan with the purpose of building bridges between the Business and the Academic sectors.
Key challenges and the latest research frontiers are presented and debated – can early use of technology lead to an increase in growth?

Modern comunnication technology offers many opportunities for new business development. Swedish research and implementation is vital and some of the succesful entrepreneurs and researchers share their views on the challenges of today and the strategic choices that lie ahead. Major companies in the Telecom sector present how they adopt their business development plans according to new business models.

The morning session on the 25th November you can meet and listen to: Carl Gustaf Jansson, KTH, Peter Bertilsson, bwin Games, Andreas Bernström, Rebtel, Andreas Ehn, Donnie Lygonis, KTH Innovation, Sven Hammar, Apica, Eric Matsgård, Qbrick, Alex Jonsson, MoSync, Gösta Lemne, Ericsson, Tomas Brunegård, Stampen, Jimmy Ahlstrand, SVT, Fredrik Lagergren, KTH Executive School, Kerstin Frenning, Marie Persson-Björkman, Anne-Marie Fransson, IT Arbetsgivarna, Henrik Blomgren, KTH mfl.

Venue: Electrum, Kistagången 16, Kista. Starts 08.30 and ends at 12.20

The afternoon session will be a debate on policies for early use of technology and growth. This will take place at KTH Campus, Sal F1, Lindstedtsvägen 22.

SSF launches a new call in the area of Software intensive systems. The program envisages 5 year projects and the total budget is up to160 MSEK. Wireless@KTH will promote and co-fund applications for projects  from KTH research groups in the field of Mobile/Wireless Systems and Services that are to be performed in collaboration with our industry partners. Please contact the Wireless@KTH director Jens Zander or dep director Mats Nilson if you plan an application within the above area.

Time table: Deadline for applications is November 24, 14.00  Funding decisions are taken  not later that March/April 2011.

The paper “ Context-Aware RRM for Opportunistic Content Delivery in Cellular Networks” authored by Wireless@KTH researchers Pietro Lungaro, Zary Segall and Jens Zander received a best paper award at the Third International Conference on Communication Theory, Reliability, and Quality of Service (CTRQ 2010) in Athens, Greece, in June.




The paper is an early output from the Vinnova funded COSEM project that was recently launched in cooperation with Ericsson and TeliaSonera.

Prof Dongwoo Kim has been in Sweden several times. In 2007 he spent a year as guest professor at KTH and in 2008 he visited again for a month in the summer. For the third time he recently visited Wireless@KTH since his research area is very close to that of the, Professor  Jens Zander, director of Wireless@KTH.

– I worked for many years on my thesis which was founded on Prof Zander’s work and we had several transactions over a ten year period before we actually met. I wanted to come here and so I sent a letter asking if it was possible to visit. I was in the position to choose between going to Harvard or KTH but I came here because the aspects or resource allocation interested me more than the deeper technical or physical aspects that the American research was focused on.

– Due to the rapid increase in the number of wireless mobile subscribers and their demands for high-speed multimedia communications, efficient spectrum or radio resource management is of great importance. The primary intent of my research is to provide the efficiency in design and implementation of wireless communication systems or networks.

Professor Dongwoo Kim held a presentation to fellow researchers and Ph D students at Wireless@KTH, introducing some new terminology that his group at WNL (Wireless Network Lab) work with, such as “sub-sharing” and “protocol diversity”.  He called for any collaboration from members in RCS for this topic. It attracted interest from Ph D student Pietro Lungaro at Wireless@KTH who will maybe work closer on this subject in the future.
