When the electric vehicle industry gathered in Oslo for EVS35, the Electric Vehicle Symposium, key actors from Sweden joined forces to showcase the country’s capabilities and ecosystem. Per Österström, our head of foreign direct investment, was the coordinator for Sweden’s participation and the Swedish Pavilion, which gathered around 100 delegates representing the private, public and academic sectors. We asked him some questions to find out more about this year’s conference.

Why did Sweden have a pavilion there? 

“We at Business Region Göteborg believe it is vital from a regional and national perspective to have close ties between the private, public and academic actors around this technology shift. It’s also incredibly important that in Sweden we join forces and show the benefits of investing and developing tomorrow’s solutions in our country. From a regional perspective, it is a crucial matter for our regional growth and future jobs.” 

“We are country with great a foundation for driving this transition. We have a clear innovation agenda, are world leading within sustainability, have good possibilities to produce green electricity and a proven track record in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship. We have excellent pre-conditions, but our long-term success will be determined by how well we collaborate and market Sweden's strengths together. We have an interdependence, and we are all co-responsible for our future. Therefore, we have made a big commitment together with Sweden and Gothenburg's two largest companies, the Volvo Group and Volvo Cars.”

What did Gothenburg present in the Swedish Pavilion? 

“We had a city model over central Gothenburg. Here we show how the city will develop in the future and how we see an efficient and emission free mobility and transport system that improves quality of life for residents and is integrated into urban development.”

“The Volvo Group and Volvo Cars, together with other partners from the region, also showcased new innovations that illustrated our leading position in the transition towards electrified mobility and transportation.”
