In November 2017, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven of Sweden and President Emmanuel Macron of France signed a strategic partnership for innovation, digital transformation and green solutions between the two nations. This project investigates how an umbrella organisation may be formed to stimulate French-Swedish collaboration in projects on smart mobility.

Target should be (1) Investment in emergent mobility projects with French-Swedish partnerships, and (2) Establish channels in France and/or French counterpart for Drive Sweden.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was designed for investigating the need for and value of a possible umbrella organisation for French Swedish interests in smart mobility.

Two conferences were held i parallel to this project. In Paris on May 9th and in Stockholm on September 3rd.
