RISE supports Swedish industry and society – how can we help you?

Early on during the corona pandemic, the Swedish society found itself in a serious situation. We needed and still need to act responsibly, both as citizens and employees, so as to not increase the rate of infection and, consequently, the burden on healthcare. We have seen the large effects of the pandemic in society, industry and on the global economy, and it’s likely that myriad of changes still await us in the time ahead.

Our business has carried on, we are adapting to the current situation, following the recommendations from authorities and continuously updating our internal guidelines accordingly – guidelines that we also employ when interacting with our customers and suppliers.

Listen to how our CEO, Pia Sandvik, commented on the situation early on during the pandemic.

RISE has been mandated by the Swedish government to be internationally competitive and facilitate sustainable growth in Sweden by strengthening competitiveness and innovation in the business community. Society and the business community need us now more than ever. We take responsibility for society and for our customers by keeping our business going, responding to our customers’ needs, and identifying ways in which we can contribute during this time of crisis. That’s why we want to know how we can help you. A few examples of how we can lend support follow below:
