Innovation for the green transition

Innovation for green transition

The project Innovation for green transition aims to help small and medium-sized businesses in northern Sweden to grow and become more competitive by harnessing the opportunities of the green transition in the industry.

By making innovation environments and testbeds visible and accessible, the project aims to strengthen companies' ability to develop innovations and seize the business opportunities created by the green industrial transition in northern Sweden. Additionally, the project enables increased access to knowledge and tools for systematic innovation work for small and medium-sized enterprises. Thanks to the project, collaboration in innovation between companies and other actors such as industrial firms, academic institutions, and research institutes can be promoted.

RISE Processum will, in the project, create new collaboration opportunities by matching waste streams with companies that can increase their value. It will offer systematic innovation collaboration, make existing innovation environments and testbeds visible and accessible, and actively coordinate activities within the project locally in Örnsköldsvik.

The project is a part of the North Sweden Cleantech platform and has a strong connection to RISE Processum's previous project, North Sweden Cleantech.
