Our strategy is based on the needs that exist in the world around us and the expectations that business and the public sector have of us. The strategy is a tool for creating growth. It is based on the mission we have from our owner, and it helps us accelerate the transition.
The strategy for achieving our goals and contributing to sustainable growth in Sweden is about offering science-based solutions that strengthen the competitiveness of the business sector and contribute to sustainable transition.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals set the overall direction for a sustainable future by 2030. At RISE, these goals serve as the guiding star for all the work we do, and the vision for what we want to achieve together with our customers and partners.
RISE's strategy for sustainable growth 2022-2026 is based on five prioritised societal challenges in the Swedish Research Bill.
Climate and environment
In the area of climate and environment, there is a need for more research on climate change, biodiversity, oceans and water, sustainable and a climate-adapted built society, circularity and a bio-based economy and sustainable food systems.
Health and welfare
New needs are arising from the growing health gaps between socioeconomic groups, lifestyle diseases, an aging population, pandemics, antibiotic resistance and mental illness. More focus is needed on preventive measures, and healthcare that is personalized, digitalised, equal and accessible.
The digital transformation of society is an important prerequisite for innovation in both the public and private sectors. There needs to be more focus on a secure and ethical application of digital services, which will require regulatory alignment so that technology integration is both secure and ethical.
Talent management and working life
In many areas and at all levels of education there is a serious shortage of trained staff. Supply of labour, with the right expertise, is a prerequisite for a high quality of life, continued growth and development throughout the country, and a high rate of growth.
A strong, democratic society
Cyberattacks and natural disasters are testing society’s resilience and ability to recover. Challenges like these confirm the growing need for more knowledge about how we should create and maintain strong societies.
