Mistra InfraMaint - an important research programme

We give municipalities and W&S operations a better basis for maintenance decisions

How much water can you save with smart grids?

How can you determine the correct level of maintenance for roads, bicycle lanes and W&S?

We take advantage of the possibilities new technology and new ways of organising give us

Our vision is a sustainable infrastructure that is available and safe around the clock

We will make a difference

Mistra InfraMaint is a research programme focusing on smart maintenance. Our vision is a sustainable infrastructure that is safe and available around the clock.

Effective and smart maintenance

The programme’s focus is on  permission assessments, forecasts and decision support for investments, financing and business models as well as how municipal processes and organisations can be developed to best meet the major investment needs facing society.

Creating an infrastructure for the future

We have built a strong consortium with researchers from institutes and academic institutions. Participating municipalities are especially important for the programme. Senior researchers are supplemented with doctoral students who will largely work in the municipal organisations. This means that research is based on needs and that municipalities have increased opportunity to absorb new research.

We want to halve the competence shortage

Competence requirements are high. The Mistra InfraMaint programme aims to halve the competence shortage. That makes knowledge sharing a very important part of the programme. We plan for both seminars and web-based educational sections, as well as developing new approaches and methods to make knowledge more accessible and the area maintenance more attractive.
