the Knowledge Foundation
Semantic Robots’ principal financier is the Knowledge Foundation – the universities’ research financier, which has the remit to contribute to increasing Sweden’s competitiveness.
The Knowledge Foundation only provides funding when the project is also supported and managed in conjunction with trade and industry, and this is precisely the case with Semantic Robots.
Creating internationally competitive research environments is one of the Knowledge Foundation’s main aims, along with increasing collaboration between the worlds of academia, business and institutes. A requirement is always that trade and industry contributes a value matching that which the Knowledge Foundation provides. All of this corresponds perfectly with Semantic Robots, with the project’s partners investing time, labour and resources equivalent to the financing from the Knowledge Foundation.
