Chalmers Tekniska Högskola (CHARMEC)

CHARMEC is a Centre of Excellence, or Competence Centre (in Swedish: Kompetenscentrum), in Railway Mechanics established at Chalmers University of Technology. Although railway research has been carried out since 1987, the start date for CHARMEC can be said to be when the formal agreement was signed at The Swedish National Board for Industrial and Technical Development (NUTEK) in Stockholm on 7 July 1995.
