Important results from the project

The purpose of the InfraAwards2023 was to develop circular solutions within the transport infrastructure through an innovation competition. The goal was to carry out the innovation competition and to appoint a winner, which at a later stage can be given the opportunity to apply for funds for further development towards implementation. The project aim and objective have been fulfilled through the competition which was carried out in collaboration with SIP RE:Source and sought innovations for sustainable resource use within the transport infrastructure.

Expected long term effects

The project achieved its expected results with an innovation competition completed and a winner appointed. The winning solution can serve as a sustainable alternative to today´s established noise boards. The innovation competition contributes to developing circular solutions within the transport infrastructure. The innovation competition also contributes by speeding up the process for creating innovative solutions, stimulate to creativity and innovative thinking as well as multidisciplinary cooperation.

Approach and implementation

The project was carried out in collaboration with SIP RE:Source. The working group determined the type of innovative solution in circularity that would be requested. To assess the contributions, an external jury from construction industry and client organisation was formed. The competition was communicated through both SIP´s communication channels. The competition ended with the award ceremony, in junction with the Nordic Cirkular Summit 2024 in Helsinki. The winner thus has the opportunity to apply for an individual project from InfraSweden to further develop their innovation.
