Mapping test environments
A survey of test environments linked to the Region Östergötland’s strength areas has been completed in the summer of 2016. The purpose has been to get to know which test environments exist within our strengths and strong clusters / industries – thus making them accessible to more by increasing visibility. A comprehensive report has been prepared, which maps out about 70 environments. In a next step, we will supplement in-depth interviews about whether there are test environments – and where we have / need to establish test beds.
The goal in the short term is that the preliminary results will lead to a full-scale project in future announcements within eg. Vinnova, the Swedish Growth Agency or through other announcements. Long-term goals are that the eastern companies in our industries will have access to good and easy-to-use test environments and resource personnel to enhance their development efforts. This, in turn, leads to increased growth by developing more ideas into prototypes, and that more prototypes develop into finished products and business. The assignment was financed by the Region Östergötland.

Together with Lindholmen Science Park and The Swedish Centre for Innovation and Quality in the Built Environment (IQ Samhällsbyggnad), Science Park Mjärdevi and Ebbepark conducted a preliminary study in Urban Mobility, ie mobility and transportation in the future society. The purpose was to see how these three organizations could cooperate in this context. The project was funded by the Swedish Agency for Growth.
Together with Sandbacka Park in Sandviken and Luleå Science Park, Science Park Mjärdevi has conducted a preliminary study on the possibilities for collaboration in the field of materials technology. The project was funded by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth.
