ScienceRouter & MobilityXlab Pilot
|Coordinator||Machine Intelligence Sweden AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 252 000|
|Project duration||December 2018 - March 2019|
Purpose and goal
In this project, we want to make sure that we are building a service that is a good fit to the project partner organisations Volvo Group, Volvo Cars and CEVT. After the project, SR is adapted for easy uptake in the partner companies. ScienceRouter is developed by Machine Intelligence Sweden (MIS).
Expected results and effects
We expect to learn much more how decision, payment, HR and legal processes work in large companies. This is of uttermost importance for the commercialisation of SR. The use cases in a large company for including international researchers are plenty, but if the service is not aligned with the internal processes of the companies, the practical aspects might hinder the uptake of SR.
Planned approach and implementation
A pilot study will be carried out, where representative from MIS would sit next to users at the partner companies while they use SR to search for relevant researchers. In addition to this we will carry out interviews with people in the HR and legal departments to understand how the processes and legal requirements of the partner companies can be met to facilitate the uptake of SR within the partner companies. Finally, SR will be adapted in accordance with the feedback and insights gained from the interactions, to make SR an efficient tool for the partner companies to work with.
