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.

A meeting place for companies with production in Sweden

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 the cluster networks

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

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