The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters

In 2020, RISE was appointed to coordinate the Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters, with a widened scope to all companies related to Swedish production.

The Swedish vehicle manufacturing companies have since long initiated a structure for coordination of research and innovation - the Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters. In 2020, RISE was appointed to coordinate the clusters.

Eight clusters are active today within different expertise areas within manufacturing R&D. Four clusters deal with specific manufacturing process areas, while four clusters focus on supporting areas of importance for sustainable production. 

Advantages from taking part in a cluster

The objective of the clusters is to develop sustainable manufacturing systems for innovative products, both with respect to economic and climate goals. A member of a cluster can obtain the following:

  • Creating solutions to challenges together with other industrial and research partners
  • Early information on on-going initiatives
  • Knowledge and benchmark through the network
  • Possibility to propose content in national and European R&D roadmaps.
