One important objective for RISE research institutes is to contribute to the ongoing competitiveness and renewal of Swedish industry. Through strategic competence funds, RISE has the opportunity to develop various offers to the private and public sectors.

These funds can be used to increase the expertise within the institutes within the RISE group, for structural measures aimed at creating a coherent institute sector, and for the operation of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB.
