Chef Affärs- och Innovationsområde Materialomställning
Test beds and demonstration environments, technical evaluation and verification as well as prototypes and pilot production are some of RISE's offerings in industrialisation and verification.
The ability to test and evaluate ideas at an early stage increases the pace of innovation, reduces risks and streamlines product, process and method development. The advantages of utilising a test and development environment are many, although the most important are reduced development costs and shorter lead times between concept and marketing.
Our approximately 100 testbeds and demonstration environments are open to businesses, academia and the public sector. Here, tomorrow’s materials, products, services and processes can be upscaled and tested under real-world conditions. Test beds can be used for both direct commercial assignments and as a resource in joint research and innovation projects.
Every testbed and demonstration environment is surrounded by an extensive network of expertise and stakeholders.
RISE has been tasked with making test beds more accessible, increasing the benefits of existing test beds and meeting future needs for test beds. In testbedsweden.se we have created a channel and network for increased awareness of test beds. Testbed Sweden is a digital service that gathers Swedish test beds and details the services they can provide, as well as describing the benefits that test beds can bring to you, your business and society at large.
The test bed is a vital part of the innovation ecosystem, enabling the efficient development and market introduction of new products, processes and services. The term test bed covers everything from equipment and prototype machines to policy labs and virtual and investigative environments, together with the associated expertise for continuous development. This is where competences, industries, problem owners and users come together to develop the innovations of tomorrow.
Verification of processes or services is an important element of development work and for ensuring compliance with requirement specifications and standards. RISE is a leading international partner of the business sector and public-sector stakeholders in the field of technical evaluation and verification. We are accredited for a wide range of methods and standards and also offer technical evaluation and expertise in fields where international standardised methods have yet to be developed.
Prototypes and small-scale production are important steps for both startups and mature businesses. RISE offers knowledge and infrastructure for developing functional prototypes and pilot productions in a number of fields.
