Chalmers University of Technology (CTH) offers PhD programmes as well as MScEng, MArch, BScEng, BSc, and nautical programmes. Around 13,100 people work and study at CTH, including more than 10,500 undergraduates. Each year around 300 PhD and Licentiate degrees are awarded as well as 760 MScEng and MArch degrees. Approximately 40% of Sweden's graduate engineers and architects have been educated at CTH. The research at CTH ranges from mathematics and natural sciences to engineering, industrial sciences and community development.

At 17 departments and their divisions research and education are conducted within natural sciences and all the engineering science disciplines. Chalmers has been involved in EU funded research projects since 1989 and on a continuous basis is involved in approximately 200 projects within different EU programmes, mainly the Framework Programmes. The annual EU funding for research is € 19 M. The Chalmers parts within FP7 have a contract value of € 120 M. Presently (data of 2013). Chalmers is the beneficiary in 269 accepted projects in FP7, and the coordinator or single beneficiary of 51 of these contracts. Out of these contracts, Chalmers is the host for 17 ERC grants. In total Chalmers has participated in some 600 Framework Programme projects and has been the coordinator of 90 FP projects over the years. CTH is also hosting the Swedish Hybrid Vehicle Centre (SHC) - an academic/industrial organisation directed towards Electromobility.

The Division of Condensed Matter Physics has for more than 20 years been heavily involved in research on the electrolytes for both lithium batteries (liquids, gels, polymers, ionic liquids) as well as fuel cells. The expertise in ab initio/DFT calculations and (in situ) spectroscopic measurements have been successfully applied to reveal the speciation in novel electrolytes, to suggest and explain new materials, to determine local transport limiting factors, and to optimise electrolyte performance – both in model systems and real working cells.
