From the first days of PIEp, it was clear that several of the major technical universities in Sweden would benefit PIEp and the institutions themselves. Thus PIEp nodes together show a strong commitment to technical design, and in particular the Product Innovation Engineering.
KTH-node contributes with mechatronics, integrated product development, product and service design and industrial economics and management.
Node leader: Sofia Ritzén
Faculty of Engineering (LTH)
LTH-node contributes to the design disciplines (such as machine design, packaging and logistics, ergonomics, work science) and also mjukvarututveckling and physics.
Node leader: Andreas Larsson
LTU node contributes Engineering, Economics and Management, Industrial Design, Entrepreneurship and functional product.
Node leader: Peter Törlind
The node contributes to industrial design.
Nod leader: Monica Lindh Karlsson
Jönköping University (HJ)
HJ is well known for its close contact with new firms and their large network of small business in an innovative region in Sweden. PIEp spans all four schools at HJ: International School of Engineering, School of Education and Communication, Engineering and Health Sciences.
Node leader: Glenn Johansson
In addition to the six Swedish nodes PIEp has five International Partners. With a strong common interest in innovation and product design and development, helps each partner with different qualities and resources through his involvement with PIEp.
