Project types

To enable strategic planning for a fossil free energy system transition, broad and scientifically based knowledge is needed for decision support. f3 carries through system-oriented and interdisciplinary research in connection to every step in the renewable transportation fuel value chain. The projects complement ongoing research in the field and are applied for internally within the centre. The f3 board decides on funding and the projects are carried through by the centre partnets in collaboration with relevant stakeholders. More information for the centre partners is available here.

Through the host organisation Chalmers Industriteknik, f3 finances the collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems together with the Swedish Enery Agency. Calls for projects within the collaborative research program are announced separately.

f3 has been active since 2011. The first phase of the collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems ran from 2014 to 2017. The second four-year phase started in January 2018.

All projects are categorized in five areas.
