Important results from the project

The purpose of the project is to develop, test and disseminate digital business model innovation methods for increased sustainability in Swedish industrial ecosystems. By aiming to reduce the environmental footprint by creating digitalization-enabled advanced services, this project has increased capabilities and supported commercialization of sustainable business models in Swedish industrial ecosystems.

Expected long term effects

We have 1) developed new and improved existing capabilities for digital business model innovation for providers, customers and digital actors, 2) developed a method for business model innovation for creating aligned business models involving multiple ecosystem actors, and 3) tested prototypes of digital business model innovations that combine product, service, and information components from multiple ecosystem actors into commercially attractive offerings.

Approach and implementation

The project consortium includes academics members from Luleå University of Technology, two industrial networks, and eighteen industrial actors representing customer, provider, and digital actor from mining, construction, manufacturing and forestry ecosystems. To fulfill our purpose, we have focused on internal capability development for partner companies, development and testing of business model innovation methods through real-life prototype cases, and dissemination and packaging of results.
