Company Profile

RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, with more than 2700 employees, develops and transfer technology for improving competitiveness and quality in society and industry. RISE works actively for the advancement of safety, conservation of resources and production of a sustainable environment with Sweden’s broadest and most sophisticated range of laboratory resources. RISE performs applied research and innovation in close liaison with industry, universities and international partners. In addition, RISE is hosting the Swedish National Metrology Institute (NMI) with responsibility for national primary measurement references. We perform research within metrological areas – developing new measurement standards and measurement techniques – combining emerging scientific or industrial needs with RISE’s highest metrology expertise. The activities include development of measuring methods and instruments on behalf of customers.

Core Competences

RISE has interest and skills in several technology fields such as Extensive experience and laboratory resources for electrical metrology at room temperature as well as at cryogenic temperatures. Both low and high voltage at DC AC and pulses. At high voltage unique capabilities for onsite measurements. Optical metrology including refraction and spectroscopy with application in e.g. measurements of low pressure and vacuum Dimensional metrology ranging from nano- to global scales Developing equipment and methods for dissemination and synchronization of time and frequency Sensor development and methods for Positioning, Navigation and Time (PNT) including GNSS Extensive experience and laboratory resources within high-frequency and microwaves . This includes both wired and radiated microwaves, including world- leading resources for antenna measurements and testing. Long experience in signal processing with applications in remote sensing and sensor fusion including modelling and simulation with applications


High voltage reference divider to CERN. Various measurement systems to more than fifteen metrology institutes around the world. National system for robust and correct time for the Swedish Internet infrastructure.
