METRO is an multidisciplinary project with nine Swedish partners from a wide range of disciplines. The partners include both research organisations, such as universities and research institutes, and practitioners, such as the rescue services and metro operators. The nine partners are:

  • Mälardalen University – School of Sustainable Development of Society and Technology
  • SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden – Fire Technology
  • Lund University – Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety
  • Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) – Defence and Security, Systems and Technology
  • Gävle University – Department of Technology and Built Environment
  • Swedish National Defence College – CRISMART
  • Swedish Fortifications Agency
  • Greater Stockholm Fire Brigade
  • Stockholm Public Transport (SL)

A reference group with representatives from industry, academia and government agencies is also closely linked to METRO. The partners and the reference group meet on a regular basis (one to two times per year) to discuss the progress of the project.
