Purpose and goal

The overall goal is to boost the Swedish industry´s ability for sustainable innovations in product realization, and thus its competitiveness. In this initiation phase, a stakeholder survey, project planning and building a strong consortium are the main ingredients. It has from stakeholders in Sweden and internationally been confirmed that the intended method has a large potential. The consortium and project plans have been further developed and thus the main project objectives have been met.

Results and expected effects

The project has reached its expected goals, in the form of a plan for the development of the Eco-leap method and a program structure and a strong multidisciplinary consortium. It has been confirmed that the intended method has a large demand from stakeholders both in Sweden and internationally. The stakeholders needs have been clarified and will serve as an input to the next step. The project team has been strengthened, not least in terms of possible dissemination to the industry as ALMI and Teknikföretagen, have been supplemented with Fordonskomponentgruppen.

Approach and implementation

The project has been affected by personnel changes and acute sick leave, so it has been completed in less time than initially planned. The original plans have been adjusted to suit the shorter period, for example, companies were visited one by one instead of a joint workshop, as it proved to be difficult to quickly match calendars. The consortium/ ractitioners good cooperation and great networks in the Swedish industry has made catch up possible.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
