RISE Research Institute Partners with Intel to Develop Sustainable Solutions for Data Center Heat Removal  

RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, a leading research institute and innovation partner, is collaborating with Intel, to support the Infrastructure and Cloud research and test Environment (ICE), which is a data center testbed, with Thermal Test Vehicles, chip heat flux emulators.

“We look forward to working with RISE to lead the industry into a new era of more efficient and sustainable thermal solutions,” said Viktor Tymchenko, Intel vice president, data center group, platform hardware engineering division. “Through the Intel and RISE collaboration, thermal innovations for future cloud and server platforms and facilities will come to market sooner, with the goal of benefiting the entire industry and the planet.”

Intel joins other collaborators such as Meta, Ericsson, Vattenfall, ABB, LTU, Vertiv, and BP Castrol.

Through the collaboration with RISE, Intel will specifically RISE will provide access to study results and experts, as well as publications and demonstrations by RISE and engagement in small research and development studies.

The data center research at RISE is based in Luleå, Sweden, and RISE is owned by the Swedish state and supported by EU and national funds.

Collaborating with universities, industry and the public sector, RISE performs industrial research and innovation, with the overall objective to support sustainable growth by strengthening industry competitiveness and ability to be in the forefront.

A key value delivered to the collaboration is the large-scale test environment with data center modules, climate and heat boxes, wind tunnels, edge and liquid cooling testbeds, and the ability to take simulations and concepts to the point of implemented demonstrations and tests for data collection and analysis.

“We want to come closer to the industrial needs and direct bi-lateral collaborations help the dialogue. This way we can continue to develop our thought leadership together with our industry collaborators,” says Tor Björn Minde, director ICE Data Center at RISE.
