About us

Drive Sweden is a government initiative for more sustainable transportation systems. The program brings together over 200 stakeholders from the business, academia, and the public sector. By financing innovations, Drive Sweden contributes to making new solutions in shared, connected and automated mobility not only technically, commercially, and legally feasible but also creates benefits for society, individuals, and businesses. The program has been in operation since 2015 and is financed by Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency, and Formas. Partners confirm that the broad collaboration in project and program activities leads to a broadened perspective, rapid knowledge development, and more market-adapted solutions.

The program

Drive Sweden is one of Sweden's 17 Strategic Innovation Programs, with funding from VinnovaThe Swedish Energy Agency and Formas. The actor-driven Innovation Programs work together in areas that are strategically important for Sweden and shall contribute to creating sustainable solutions to global societal challenges and increased international competitiveness. The Swedish government invests a total of eight billion SEK for the programs that can receive funding for up to twelve years, with business and other actors mirroring this investment.

Partners

The partners create the greatest effects of the program's work; both through an exchange of knowledge that strengthens all different actors but also through concrete results and initiatives from the projects and forums in which they participate. Our partners represent the public sector, business and academia – both nationally and internationally. See all our partners here.

Program Board

The board is responsible for the program's project portfolio, innovation agenda and strategic direction. The board consists of representatives from our partner organisations. The members are elected by our partners at the annual general meeting, which is held once a year. If you want to nominate a candidate for the board or get in touch with the election committee, email programoffice@drivesweden.net

Drive Sweden is governed by the program board that was elected at the Annual General Meeting in February 2024.

Get involved!

In order to change our current mobility system to a connected, automated and sustainable system, cooperation between different kinds of stakeholders is necessary.
