UNIZG-FER - University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing is the largest technical faculty and leading educational and R&D institution in the fields of electrical engineering, information and communication technology and computing in the Republic of Croatia. Being a constituent of the University of Zagreb, UNIZG-FER has its roots in the Technical Faculty, founded in 1919. In 1956, the departments of Technical Faculty grew into four new faculties, Faculty of Electrical Engineering being one of them. The Faculty offers today substantial educational and R&D facilities including 35 lecture halls, more than 60 laboratories, Congress centre, tele-conference centre, central library and 12 department libraries, student restaurant, sport and recreation facilities on 43,308 m2. The Faculty is organised in 12 departments that represent the focal points of education, research and development in various fields. The present research and educational staff comprises 180 professors and 210 teaching and research assistants and around 3800 students at the undergraduate and graduate level and 450 PhD students. All those numbers clearly emphasize highly spirited activities in teaching and research. The Faculty has developed valuable international cooperation with many research institutions around the world, either directly or through inter-university cooperation. Currently UNIZG-FER participates in more than 20 projects financed by EU through various grant schemes (H2020, FP7, ESIF etc.). The number of international projects makes the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing one of the most internationally active institutions in Croatia. The four laboratories at the Faculty involving the Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics (LAMOR), Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (LARICS), Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies (LABUST) and Advanced Control Team (ACT) focus their research activities in different aspects of robotics and control. These four laboratories will be in charge for the ACROSS project implementation.

KTH - Royal Institute of Technology

Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan conducts world-leading education and research of a broad spectrum, from natural science to all branches of technology and provides one-third of Sweden’s capacity for engineering studies and technical research at post-secondary level. KTH is among the world top universities and recorded for Industry income — innovation score 100 out of 100. KTH has served as one of Europe’s key centres of innovation and intellectual talent for almost two hundred years. It is recognized as Sweden’s most prestigious technical university and is also the country’s oldest and largest. According to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, KTH is among top 19 technical universities world-wide and among top 10 technical universities in Europe. Another university ranking, the QS World University Ranking, places KTH as among top 16 technical universities world-wide and among top 8 technical universities in Europe. KTH has many partners that play an important role in raising the quality of our research and education programmes. Our partners are companies of varying sizes, research institutes, and a number of public organisations. Examples include ABB, Scania, Ericsson, SAAB, Vatenfall and Bombardier. The KTH Schools are responsible for education and research activities at KTH. At the different KTH Competence Centres activities of a varied nature are conducted; these often pertain to new research areas and frequently involve joint efforts with business life and the community. Each of the KTH Centres do always have a formal connection of some kind with one of KTH's Schools.
