The world needs more efficient energy systems based on renewable raw material, an equation not easily solved. At Karlstad University, research and education are in progress to find sustainable energy systems, for instance, through a project in which pellets replace charcoal in cooking solutions in Zambia, because cooking with charcoal as fuel leads to extensive deforestation as well as health hazards.

Guaranteeing that information does not leak is one of the challenges of centralising logs. Researchers at Karlstad University have now developed a technical solution for transporting logs via cloud services in a simple, secure way. “There are different techniques for protecting logs when they are centralised. One could for example encrypt them, verify that nobody has changed them, and verify that the logs come from a specific device.

Landless crofters, the subaltern, and those who lost their land in inheritance cases. In the poor houses, in the city slums. What did it mean not to own land and the vital rights that were connected to it? How could crofters influence their lives or their financial situations? How do we find these “invisible” workers who rented rooms in the cities?

In a recent study, researchers Johan Högberg and Erik Wästlund at CTF, Service Research Center, have developed a new tool that can measure users’ experiences while using a gamified service. The measuring tool, Gamefulquest, makes it possible to measure a user’s experience while using a gamified service. "With the help of this tool we can investigate how different game elements affect the gameful experience and create an understanding for how different implementations of g

Carbon based nano materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes were predicted a brilliant future when they were discovered. But quality problems curb the development of new products. The problem is that it is difficult to analyse the crystal structure and there are no established standard methods for classifying the materials.

In a recently published CTF article, researchers Frida Skarin, Lars E. Olsson, Margareta Friman and Erik Wästlund address the factors that affect behavioral changes in public transport. The researchers have studied a two-week free public transportation-trial where people, who fulfilled certain criteria, were allowed to travel free of charge by public transport for two weeks.
