Purpose and goal
The objective has been to develop a strategy for enhancing the Swedish National Lightweight Agenda through cooperation at regional and international level. The strategy work has strengthened SIP LIGHTer’s international ambitions and created a consensus on how international work contributes to the implementation of the Lightweight Agenda. For regional nodes, the strategy work has highlighted how the national platform can be strengthened and create more resources to implement the Lightweight Agenda through regional cooperation.
Expected results and effects
Two strategic agendas have been developed and approved by SIP LIGHTer’s board, one for international cooperation and one for regional LIGHTer nodes. Lightweight innovation creates prerequisites for handeling the challenging environmental goals facing the world. The operations of SIP LIGHTer are governed by the strategic research and innovation agenda called the Lightweight Agenda. By developing a strategy for SIP LIGHTer’s cooperation at regional and international level, the ambition is to create more opportunities for realizing the Lightweight Agenda.
Planned approach and implementation
Two strategic discussions with the board of SIP LIGHTer were the foundation of the strategic work. Following the discussions, a team developed the strategy in steps followed by anchoring with a dedicated group from the board and the program management team. For the regional strategy, regional actors have also been linked to the work. The commitment of the board and program management team has been crucial for an anchored strategy.
