“Primus is an internationally acknowledged and nationally leading research environment in production technology and work-integrated learning, contributing to industrial sustainable development and growth.”
Aims and objectives
Primus is a new research initiative at University West, and has been created in order to meet tomorrow’s complex societal and industry-related challenges for sustainable industry in Sweden. This is based on the university’s established research interests, which are also supported by three overarching national industrial needs:
- Facilitating the shift towards more sustainable, streamlined and improved manufacturing processes that allow for innovative concepts for new and existing products.
- Increased flexibility and greater integration of manufacturing processes into product and production development, supported by digitalisation and automation.
- Knowledge development within production organisations for a more knowledge-intensive Swedish industry, featuring faster implementation of research findings.
