About LINK-SIC

LINK-SIC is a Vinnova Competence Center. The annual budget is 21 MSEK and the funding comes from Vinnova, Linköping University, and the participating companies.

Vision

The vision for LINK-SIC is to be an attractive and internationally competitive arena for industry-oriented research within Sensor Informatics and Control, contributing to growth and development of Swedish industry.

Research strategy

The core of the research activities within LINK-SIC will be a set of PhD student projects, including industrial PhD students. By focusing on PhD student projects, the center will generate research results of industrial relevance and at the same time contribute with educated people at PhD level with knowledge and skills of importance for the Swedish system-building industry. The selection of research projects will be carried out within the Board of the center in a joint process between the academic and the industrial partners, where the partners will discuss and evaluate the project ideas with respect to several aspects:

  • The proposed projects should be based on the long-term needs of the companies in terms of market trends, legislation requirements, company strategies, etc.
  • The scientific challenges of the projects should be in line with the core competences of the center and should require the research frontier to be moved forward.
  • The expected time horizons for the projects should be suitable for PhD projects. 

For the research to generate results of both high scientific quality and industrial relevance, the aim is that the research projects should combine development of theories, models and methods on one hand and implementations and experiments using real hardware and real data on the other hand.
