STandUP for Wind is a research centre profiled towards planning and establishing wind energy in the Swedish electrical network. The centre is a collaboration between Uppsala University (UU), Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Luleå University of Technology (LTU) as part of the government’s strategic STandUP for Energy research area.

The centre has a turnover of approximately 40 million Swedish crowns for it’s research, education and communication activities and involves nearly 70 persons.
