The overall purpose of this program is to develop a strong and lasting innovation environment for the Swedish construction sector. This will be achieved by bridging the gap with Academia and thereby promoting the commercialization of knowledge, solutions and research results. In cooperation with the Swedish University of Building Engineering Sciences, the program aims at improving the collaboration between the construction industry, research institutes and other organizations.
The program is a continuation of the initial work performed during 2009-2011. Provided this newly started phase shows positive results, it is the intention of VINNOVA and the industrial partners to continue with the program for a total period of 15 years.
