Focus on companies from RISE and LTU Business

Published: 16 February 2017

At the end of the year the research institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT merged and formed RISE. Now the Institute, Sweden's largest with 2200 employees, focus on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in Norrbotten in cooperation with LTU Business AB.

- Small and medium-sized enterprises play a major role for Swedish industry and it is a stated objective that we as institutions should help them to grow and develop. Small businesses often lack access to scientists, engineers, laboratories and testing required when new products are being developed. RISE offer all this in close cooperation with LTU Business, said Adam Wikström.
