Contact: Martin Bang Kristensen


In Materials, you’ll work with us to answer three basic questions: 

  • How do materials in our products behave and interact with their environment?
  • What are the latest developments in material science and how can we use these for Grundfos?
  • How can integrating materials and design give our products a competitive edge?

Contact: Allan Hjarbæk Holm

Digital Manufacturing

Within Digital Manufacturing, you’ll find projects related to our foundational systems in our manufacturing IT architecture, and digital projects aimed at investigating and developing new digital solutions to optimise Grundfos Operations.

Contact:  Alexander Larsen

Sustainable Manufacturing

Within sustainable manufacturing, you’ll find projects related to the development of new sustainable production technologies and remanufacturing of pump components from the Grundfos Take Back programme.

Contact: Leif Gram Nielsen

Manufacturing Process Technologies

Within manufacturing process technologies you’ll find projects related to the development and optimisation of manufacturing processes for our hydraulic components, motors, integrated controls and also final assembly of pumps and pump solutions. 

Contact: Torben Buch Rasmussen

Additive Manufacturing

Within Additive Manufacturing, you’ll find projects related to the development of additive manufacturing processes, materials and design in both metal and polymers.

Contact: Thorsten Brorson Otte


In Sensors, you’ll help us develop sensor solutions for our pumps and pump systems. The sensors we work with range from flow, pressure and temperature sensors, to optical, vibrational and electromagnetic sensors. Furthermore we also work with soft sensors. Our projects are typically within these areas:

  • Sensor principles
  • Hardware electronics, which include both analogue and digital electronics
  • Sensor packaging and integration
  • Signal processing

Contact: Michael R.S. Hansen

Water Treatment

In the Water Treatment Department, we undertake projects aimed at ensuring that water sources are of the appropriate quality for final use, regarding both chemical and biological parameters. Additionally, we work on optimizing water treatment systems, to help our customers succeed in reducing their water footprint.

Contact: Bruno Kiilerich 


Within Automation-Robotics you’ll find projects related to how to make smart automation solutions using robots and IT supporting tools.

Contact: Morten Houlind Simonsen

Machine Learning

We’re continuously exploring, developing, and testing new technologies within the classical fields of engineering. Within Machine Learning, you’ll find projects that are closely tied to the physics of our products.

Contact: Lasse Søgaard Ledet 

Test and Configuration

In the area of Test & Configuration you can work with test production equipment and test technologies, such as measuring techniques, configuration and software handling in production setup, and customised production equipment.

Contact: Kim Lieberknecht


At Electronic Modules and Simulation, you will find projects on simulations and optimization of power electronics converters as well as system simulation for our products.

Contact: Rakesh Ramachandran
