ELLIIT – Strategic Research Environment

ELLIIT (Excellence Center at Linköping–Lund in Information Technology) is a strategic research environment funded by the Swedish government since 2010, as part of its initiative to support strong research in information technology and mobile communications.

Halmstad University is part of the ELLIIT strategic research environment aimed at encouraging research in information technology and mobile communications. The overarching objective of ELLIIT is to support scientific excellence in combination with industrial relevance and impact.

ELLIIT stands for Excellence Center at Linköping-Lund in Information Technology and has four partners: Linköping University, Lund University, Halmstad University and Blekinge Institute of Technology.

ELLIIT constitutes a platform for both fundamental and applied research, and for cross-fertilization between disciplines and between academic researchers and industry experts. ELLIIT stands out by the quality and visibility of its publications, and its ability to attract and retain top talented researchers, and aims at being recognised as a top international research organization.

ELLIIT achieves its goals by a judicious choice of funded focus projects, a structured process for international recruitment, a balanced way of stimulating cooperation between research areas and between the sites involved, and a proactive approach towards fostering and maintaining cooperation with Swedish industry.
