During times of crisis and war, our society faces new challenges. Among other things, we need to find an alternative supply of products in health care.
The need for alternative supply was made clear during Covid-19 when Sweden urgently needed to develop more products in the healthcare area.
Several Swedish companies were able to convert their production relatively quickly to meet society's new needs during the pandemic. On several occasions, RISE was able to support the companies with their production conversion. This not only concerned the production conversion itself. It also included surrounding services such as support in testing, verification of products, and requirement specifications adapted to the situation that arose.
Sweden has a well-developed and competent manufacturing industry. This gives the country great opportunities for production conversion. But for production conversion to work practically, support and guidance are needed in the switch to producing new types of products. This is where RISE contributes to accelerating the transition. This is done with our broad expertise in consulting, coaching, and our test and demo environment.
At RISE, we develop strategies and prepare for Sweden to change its production in the event of a crisis or ultimately in war. By doing this, we can produce goods that are crucial for the country's livelihood.
In addition to RISE being able to contribute and participate in production conversion, we also have extensive experience in preventive work and have contact with producers in health and medical care along the entire value chain.
Within production conversion and flexible production, RISE can support the following:
RISE contributes to work with standards, method development, and certification of finished products. We have a large network of contacts in both the private and public sectors, including contacts with relevant authorities. In addition to working with preventive support and coaching, we contribute with practical expertise in emergencies.
