How we work
In collaboration with approximately 200 partner organizations and additional actors found within our projects, we drive development that will lead to improved accessibility to mobility and transport for individuals and companies, and that the environmental performance and traffic safety increases at a system level. We bring together small and large companies, public organizations, universities and research institutes to co-create, test and demonstrate new connected, shared and automated solutions that contribute to a more efficient use of vehicles, street space and road infrastructure in Sweden.
This is done by monitoring, analyzing and disseminating knowledge about the development of the mobility system, in Sweden and internationally. We gather municipalities, regions, authorities, business, academia and institutes for effective and constructive collaborations. We get to know each other's perspectives and driving forces and thus find the fastest way to implement and commercialize new solutions. And not least, we finance projects, the results of which we promote and which can lead to new solutions and contribute to continued development of knowledge.
In order to work systematically to produce relevant projects, find cross-sectoral challenges, stimulate a broad exchange of knowledge and get the necessary actors to move in the same direction, we work with different thematic areas. In addition, work is conducted through projects and centrally by the program, which can be seen in the picture below. This is coordinated by the program office. In this way, we get focused initiatives, relevant crosstalk and good opportunities to get the right actors to see the right issues.
Below is more information about some of our cornerstones.
Projekt och programaktiviteter
Grunden i vårt arbete delas upp mellan projekt och programaktiviteter. Projekten utforskar specifika frågeställningar och utvecklar lösningar som på olika vis kan bidra till ett mer hållbart transportsystem och Drive Swedens vision. Projektidéer kan förverkligas som projekt genom våra öppna utlysningar eller genom beslut om att de ska startas genom så kallade strategiska projekt. Läs om hur du kan skapa ett projekt här.
Våra programaktiviteter är olika former av event, omvärldsbevakning, nyhetsbrev, framtidsutblickar som syftar till att öka kunskapsspridningen, stärka nätverket och bidra till effektiva samarbeten. Dessa utförs av vårat kansli och programkontor.
Drive Sweden has identified a number of questions that are important to many projects or program initiatives. Areas that need an in-depth focus to be driven forward, that benefit from continuity and a certain coordination. For example, it can be about international contexts that require quick and collected efforts, channels to market the competence within our network through or more continuous "lab environments" where projects or partners can develop and test specific issues.
We have gathered these areas in special initiatives, our Program Platforms. Get in touch with the platforms' contact persons if you want to know more. You find them below.
