A mission-oriented approach to a sustainable industry

As a results of collaborations between industry and society, Vinnova is now rigging a offer with the aim of stimulating the development of system demonstrators. These are broad investments of a system nature that will accelerate the development towards a sustainable industry.

Vinnova works mission-oriented together with the business community to facilitate the industry's transition to sustainability. There is a need for a holistic view between resilience and local production on the one hand and efficiency and globalization on the other.

In 2021, Vinnova has held a number of workshops to identify and gather strength around common goals for a resilient, resource-efficient and local production. Under Sweden innovation days in January 2022, a workshop was also held with international participants on the same theme.

We see a mission-oriented approach as a tool to gather strength and mobilize actors in the transition to a sustainable industry.

The next step is to turn the insights from the workshops conducted in the autumn of 2021 into a offer for actors. During March 2022, a offer opens up for funding that aims to prepare system demonstrators who can contribute to a resilient, resource-efficient and local production.

The purpose of the mission work is to find a common objective where everyone's interests are taken into account. In the video below, you get to know more about how the work was carried out.

The pandemic has made it clear that our global value chains are vulnerable. Swedish industry is well placed to influence global climate emissions - through the export of sustainable products and services.

- We see missions as a tool to gather strength and mobilize actors before the transition to a sustainable industry, says Ulf Öhlander, responsible at Vinnova for the investment.

For the past three years, Vinnova has therefore invited a wide range of representatives from various parts of the value chain in both industry and other sectors of society. The participants' different perspectives have contributed to elevating the discussion and capturing issues of a systemic nature.

With a mission-oriented approach, we want to enable a global arena for testing and implementation of sustainable systems and processes where the industry, infrastructure, food and living environments of the future can be developed.
