Testing the future together
Gothenburg is standing at the threshold to the future. The city possesses an innovative power the likes of which have never been seen before, and investment plans in the region are up in a total of EUR 100 billion. In order to take advantage of this unique situation, we will have to work together on a whole new level. For this reason, we have established Testbed Gothenburg.
Testbed Gothenburg is an initiative encompassing the entire city: trade and industry, public contributors, academia and research institutes and science parks, and was initiated by the City of Gothenburg through Business Region Göteborg, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, Chalmers University of Technology and Gothenburg University. Testbed Gothenburg provides a clear strategy for innovation and collaboration. The city is gearing up its capacity and ability for testing and is freeing up resources to proactively address tomorrow's challenges.
"This huge urban development is a force for innovation and is something we want to take advantage of. Through the initiative Testbädd Göteborg, the city increases its capacity and capabilities and also makes available its resources so that we can develop sustainable solutions to the societal challenges we face." says Maria Strömberg, Head of Clusters and Innovation at Business Region Göteborg.
Testbed Gothenburg enables us to accelerate development, build knowledge, take advantage of the region's innovative power and grow together – trade and industry, academia, institutes and the city.
We’re testing the future together.
"The conditions we have here are unique. There is no other city that has the ambition to build its capacity and ability in this direction. As a university, we have the task of contributing to sustainable social development, and collaboration is a fundamental requirement. We know that collaboration drives quality in research and education.”
