Annual Turnover

The annual turnover of 10 million SEK makes it to one of northern Europe’s largest research centers on future networked systems.


The budget has been substantially provided through grants from The Swedish Research Council, the European Commission, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, European Research Council, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and Ericsson.

Ericsson provides a cash contribution of 1,5 million SEK per year to the Centre. In addition, both KTH and Ericsson provides significant in-kind contributions to the Centre.



NSF sponsors the ACCESS EU-US08 Workshop on Networked Information and Control Systems, which aimed at bringing together researchers from EU and USA.

Thematic areas

ACCESS makes research in four main thematic research areas, which are each lead by an academic coordinator. Projects cut across these areas.

  • Data Analytics
  • Software Defined Networks
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Security, Privacy and Trust

Research fields

Networked systems research encompass expertise in fields like electrical engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, information and communications technology, systems and control theory, network optimization and management and network security.
