Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE)
The RISE institutes Innventia, SP, and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner. Through their international collaboration programmes with academia, industry, and the public sector, we ensure the competitiveness of the Swedish business community on an international level and contribute to a sustainable society. Their 2,200 employees support and promote all manner of innovative processes, and their roughly 100 testbeds and demonstration facilities are instrumental in developing the future-proofing of products, technologies, and services. RISE Research Institutes of Sweden is fully owned by the Swedish state.
RISE's overall mission is to, in cooperation with academia, business and society, contribute to sustainable growth and strengthen competitiveness for Swedish companies. RISE drives the development of a strong Swedish institute sector.
In the autumn of 2014, an extensive analytical and strategic project was initiated amongst the co-owners of the RISE institutes, the purpose of which was to analyse the market share and business services of the RISE Group, along with its strengths and the challenges it faces in order to identify improvement potential, achieve a more unified vision of the company and its future and goals. Swerea’s owners elected to not participate in this project.
Since then, Innventia, SP, and Swedish ICT have merged, with the aim of together creating a more united institute sector and becoming a stronger innovation partner for both the Swedish business community and broader society. In 2017 they changed their name to RISE. Pia Sandvik is the MD of the new macro-institute.See more
