About Test Site Sweden
We provide a neutral arena for cooperation in vehicles, transports and environmental engineering. Test Site Sweden initiates and develops vehicle test and demonstration environments to support the development of sustainable transport. We are also a partner to Vinnova in the test beds in environmental engineering program.
Test Site Sweden is run as a program at Lindholmen Science Park with the task of developing test and demonstration environments in Sweden to support the development of sustainable transport systems. Sweden’s vehicle and transport know-how could gain an international profile through Test Site Sweden.
Industry, society and academia
Test Site Sweden is run as a program at Lindholmen Science Park on behalf of Vinnova.
Test Site Sweden started in autumn 2006 with the task of creating a demonstration and testing environment for products and services in ITS. This site offers players from industry, academia and non-governmental organizations a new opportunity for cooperation. Test Site Sweden’s commission was extended in 2013 to include the area of environmental engineering.
Focus on environmental and sustainable transport systems
Test Site Sweden now comprises two main areas:
Test beds in the field of environmental engineering on behalf of Vinnova. Test Site Sweden’s role in this is to help Vinnova with calls for proposals, evaluations, and to be responsible for network activities.
To initiate and develop new test and demonstration environments for vehicles in order to support the development of sustainable transport systems.
An international market
Today, major investments are being made in demonstration and testing environments around the world. Large national test and demonstration trials are being run or coordinated by Test Site Sweden and we have the ambition to cooperate with other test operations in Sweden, such as the existing winter tests in Norrland. Together, we can create a national test arena that will enhance the strength of Sweden’s attractiveness internationally.
