SIIR has built up a structure for partnerships with businesses. Within these partnerships we engage in various research projects, both shorter and longer term. We base our work on the problems that companies have and discuss us to how we can plan the projects. Companies we work with today are, among others, Comfort, Ellos Group, Gina Tricot, Hemtex, Svenska Fönster, and Vinga of Sweden (external links).
In addition to these projects, we continually apply for research grants from various funding agencies.
We actively contribute to spreading knowledge in different ways. Svensk Digital Handel (external link) conducts an annual event called D-Congress and here, SIIR is responsible for Akademiska scenen and is responsible for the programme.
In 2016, SIIR participated for the first time in Almedalen and conducted three seminars in collaboration with Svensk Handel (external link).
