In co-production with a hundred industrial companies, around 20 researchers have developed cutting-edge knowledge and industrial applications for the future.
“This is a response to the challenges of digitalisation, globalization and climate change, especially for small and medium-sized industrial companies,” says Lars Bengtsson, professor and director for the Centre for Logistics and Innovative Production.
Three strategic areas
The project focused on three strategic areas: smart production, sustainable logistics systems and open innovation processes.
“We have chosen to focus our research on areas that are of particular importance for competitiveness and good working conditions for companies in our county,” Lars Bengtsson says.
