Why a membership is the right thing for you

The ICES Network is a mix of Industry Experts, Leading Academics and Top Students. This blend gives a multitude of opportunities for all our stakeholders. Created by KTH and 6 founding Companies over a decade ago, ICES continues to play an active  role in the intersection between Industry, Academia and Society.

Trending Topics

In an ever changing world, ICES is spanning multiple industries and technology domains. Over time certain topics become more frequent then others. Our members have a strong voice in setting the agenda and forming our actions.

Daily Opportunities


Maybe obvious to some but still an amazingly important aspect. The opportunity to be able to listen to other members sharing their insights, findings or expertise is something that is hard to put a value on. And the rule is simple, the more you give the more you get in return.


ICES offer a broad range of learning and networking activities every year, ranging from workshops and seminars up to formal trainings and conferences. Check out the Event calendar to see what's in the pipeline.

Competence Groups

Each group has its own dedicated theme and agenda to make sure that the group members get the most out of their participation.
The Competence Groups are open to employees of Gold and Silver Members.

Find Talent

To help Swedish Industry to stay competitive, a key driver for ICES is to help our members finding people with the right skills and an innovative mindset. For that we have different mechanism, like the "Pizza with an Engineer" event, in place for letting member companies and students interact.

The Competence Group for R&D Managers is a sweet spot for devoted people to meet and to get new ideas and inspiration. We have our meetings 4-5 times a year.
