Frequently asked questions:
I’ve heard the name RISE before. But what do you do?
RISE stands for Research Institutes of Sweden and we are Sweden’s research institute. Our 2,900 problem solvers help develop technologies, products, services and processes that provide new solutions for a sustainable future. We do this in collaboration with and on behalf of the industry, academia and the public sector. We also place a special focus on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in their innovation processes.
What kind of work can I do at RISE?
With us you can work as a specialist, researcher, technician, engineer or project manager, to name a few of all the roles. Thanks to the breadth of our operations, our employees come from virtually all engineering programmes. Read more about our different areas and some of the projects we’re currently working on.

OK, but right now I have a few years left of studying. Do you have summer jobs or internships in the meantime?
Because our business goes down during the summer, we have a limited need for summer temps. The summer jobs we still offer can be found on our website under open job positions.
For internship requests, we recommend that you contact someone who works in your area of interest and at the location where you want to do your internship. You can find our contact information on our website.
What do you think is important when you hire someone?
We believe that if you like problem solving and want to be involved in leading-edge technology and research, you’ll enjoy working with us. Since we work across disciplinary boundaries, it is important that you enjoy collaborating with people and contributing your knowledge in different types of projects. This is how we believe we can create the future we all want to be a part of.
