​Applied research and sustainability focus were factors that mattered a lot when Amelie Bennich applied to a job in Mistra InfraMaint.

She recently started as a doctoral student at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, and will do her research in the project 2.1 System logic and adaptation of business models in smart infrastructure maintenance.

“It is a very exciting and important area. A lot will change through digitalisation – the question is how to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the new technology”, she says.

Starts with interviews

Her first assignment will be a feasibility study, a series of interviews with people who know a lot about the area.

“Do they see problems? Can current shortcomings have a solution in the new technology, what risks and challenges could it bring? It is a broad picture but I that is good in the initial stage.”

“We can collect large amounts of data when the infrastructure is digitized – but what data does it make sense to collect and how should it be used? If we start broadly, one can always delimit the research at a later stage”, says Amelie Bennich.

In the autumn of 2019, the collaboration between doctoral students at Mistra InfraMaint will begin to take shape.

Can it be a bit of a challenge to build a network of doctoral students who are geographically dispersed and work in projects with different orientations?

“No, I think we can have a lot to learn from each other. The programme and the programme goals are the same. I am sure that we will benefit from the cooperation, says Amelie Bennich.
