RISE brings together problem solvers and a unique array of resources. We are researchers and scientists, analysts and inspectors, technicians and other experts needed in the work to develop the innovations of tomorrow. Together we comprise a research institute with both feet firmly on the ground, an innovation partner that is able to contribute to everything from groundbreaking research to development and testing.

We work in collaboration with and on behalf of the private and public sectors and academia. Our focus is firmly on solutions that meet the needs of society, something that is reflected in our organisation. Our researchers and specialists work side-by-side in a variety of fields across common business and innovation areas. With over a hundred unique testbeds and development environments, we are able to future-proof new solutions on a daily basis; whether they be products, services, technologies or processes.

Organisational overview

RISE is organised in divisions, departments, units and support functions. In addition, we have business and innovation areas in place that span across the organisational sections.
