As a customer or partner of SP or one of our subsidiaries, no significant differences will be noticed. At least, not initially. All our operations will continue as before, although we will change our name. In the longer term, of course, the aim is that the new RISE should provide both coordination synergies and develop new services that benefit our customers. Above all via a broader-based offer with additional services under one roof, and with clearer paths to the institute services. This is something that is in demand primarily among small and medium-sized companies.
“Small and medium-sized companies are immensely important to growth in Sweden, but they often find it more difficult to find an entry point to research and development. RISE is accustomed to helping customers define their problems and with our broad competence base, we can work across almost the entire Technology Readiness Level scale. In other words, we’re better equipped than many other actors to provide useful support in the development of small and medium-sized companies,” says Pia Sandvik.
