Our mission

In a world facing enormous challenges, there is also hope. There is a common ambition to work for a better world for future generations. Our ambition to make a difference is what drives us here at RISE. 

Our mission is to strive for sustainable growth in Sweden by strengthening the competitiveness and capacity for renewal of Swedish industry, as well as promoting the innovative development of society as a whole. The research and innovation bill that was adopted by Riksdagen (the Swedish parliament) in April 2021 states that the overarching goal for RISE is to be internationally competetive and facilitate sustainable growth in Sweden by strengthening competitiveness and innovation in industry as well as to promote innovation and ability in the public sector to contribute to solutions to societal challenges in collaboration with industry.

Our mission is specified in the owner directives and in the various goals we receive from our owner and Board of Directors. The owner directives and goals emphasise the importance of our:  

  • conducting research of high quality
  • promoting and developing collaboration between academia, industry and the public sector
  • supporting innovative development in small and medium-sized companies 
  • running testbeds that are highly relevant to industry

Our mission unites our various roles, work tasks and perspectives into a larger aim: to work together with our customers and partners to develop competitive solutions and conditions that drive sustainable development forwards and achieve real results.
