Beyond boundaries

Beyond boundaries:
the rise of co-innovation

Why is Sweden ranked as the European Union’s most innovative country?

Take a closer look at the rapid progress of Sweden’s “test beds”, co-innovation labs and incubators to uncover a key reason.

“We have a strong tradition in Sweden of cross-border collaboration which is a major advantage. R&D roles are changing and researchers need to be experts at knowing when information can be openly shared,” explains Elis Carlström, Research Director at Swerea.

This Insight Report investigates the rise of experimental platforms that bring together start-ups, large industrial companies and academia in the spirit of open science – to validate concepts and push the frontiers of knowledge.

In addition to Swerea, one of Sweden’s leading research institutes, the report highlights recent test bed initiatives at GE Healthcare and 3D filaments start-up Add North.
