Purpose and goal
The project has dealt with the possibilities and obstacles for how Swedish industry can build digital service innovations with the help of IoT. This has been done in cooperation with firms that have developed and implemented IoT solutions such as Luda.Farm, Telenor, and others. The project has resulted in development projects that have been implemented in the project partners´ organizations. Results from the project have, through seminars and articles, been distributed to firms within and outside the project´s framework to improve how they can develop and implement IoT solutions.
Expected results and effects
Through the activities that have been carried out within the framework of the project, we have fulfilled the main purpose of the project with the development and dissemination of innovation capacity of Swedish companies with respect to digital service innovations and business models. We have met the goals we had with our two project partners and have spread our results on how Swedish industry can handle opportunities and challenges of IoT. We have also compiled our results in academic writings.
Planned approach and implementation
The project is based on extensive empirical work in the form of approx. 50 interviews and workshops. The project has also analyzed research and popular science literature to identify opportunities and obstacles in developing and implementing IoT solutions. Methods and proposals have been developed on how both participating companies and other companies need to work on developing and implementing IoT solutions. Several seminars with a wider audience have been completed and academic papers have been written to disseminate the results.
