About us

The Centre for Sustainable Communications (CESC) is a novel research environment, situated at the main campus of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. It provides a forum for knowledge exchange and collaboration between industry, the public sector and research. Together with its partners, CESC conducts applied research enabling innovative services for a sustainable lifestyle.

The VINNOVA Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Communications was founded in 2007 and is one out of 18 VINN Excellence Centers. CESC receives a base funding from VINNOVA (The Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems) via a 10 year grant courtesy (2007-2017).  Hosted at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology with strong ties to the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, the School of Computer Science and Communication and other research units, CESC is embedded in a strong international research environment. CESC’s activities are overseen by a board chaired by Christer Törnevik (Ericsson). CESC’s daily operations are lead by Mattias Höjer.

CESC collaborates with industrial and public partners that constitute a diverse mixture of multinational companies, public authorities, research institutes and NGOs. During the second contract period (July 2009 – June 2012) CESC has 13 partners.
