Important results from the project

The overall purpose of the SME Instrument is to increase the competitiveness of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies by packaging and disseminating results from Production2030´s R&I projects to them. The aim is also to increase researchers´ knowledge of SME´s challenges. This project focuses on dissemination through Technology Workshops (TWS), with the goal of 10 TWS during the period, in addition to the already planned 30 within another project, as there is large interest in TWS within the IUC network. This goal has been met.

Expected long term effects

11 TWS have been completed at 10 IUCs across the country. 73 companies have participated, with 145 company representatives. In the evaluation conducted after the completion of the TWS, most respondents say that the TWS has given them new knowledge and that the contact with researchers has responded to the participants´ expectations. Many also have the opportunity to use the knowledge gained in their companies, but not all. The content and arrangement of TWS itself receive in the responses mainly positive or very positive criticism.

Approach and implementation

In TWS, researchers from a R&I project and companies meet for a day. The TWS contain knowledge transfer, dialogue and group discussions and are organized by the IUC network. RISE IVF together with IUC Sweden coordinates. Based on information on 15 R&I projects, the IUCs choose TWS themes. A rough planning for the project period with a national distribution was made and detailed planning and implementation has been ongoing. The invitations to TWS are posted on Production 2030´s website and distributed via the IUCs. The arrangement is perceived to work well.
