Demonstrator projects

The 2-year Demonstrator projects are the main research instrument of Digital Futures to foster societal outreach. The purpose of these projects is to demonstrate and disseminate technologies for digital transformation and show their impact and potential in society. The results are expected to be disseminated in high impact venues with wide reaches, such as national television, press or more specialist venues with international reach.

The projects should be inter-disciplinary and a collaboration between two PIs of complementary backgrounds that belong to either i) two different KTH schools, ii) KTH school and RISE/Stockholm University, or iii) RISE and Stockholm University.
