The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), is an independent and internationally prominent research institute in the transport sector. Our principal task is to conduct research and development related to infrastructure, traffic and transport. We are dedicated to the continuous development of knowledge pertaining to the transport sector, and in this way contribute actively to the attainment of the goals of Swedish transport policy.

Our operations cover all modes of transport, and the subjects of pavement technology, infrastructure maintenance, vehicle technology, traffic safety, traffic analysis, users of the transport system, the environment, the planning and decision making processes, transport economics and transport systems. Knowledge that the institute develops provides a basis for decisions made by stakeholders in the transport sector. In many cases our findings lead to direct applications in both national and international transport policies.

We have about 200 employees and are located in Linköping (head office), Stockholm, Gothenburg, Borlänge and Lund.
