Competence transition/Reskilling

When the transport ecosystem goes digital, electric and connected the demand for a competence shift in the automotive business increases. One key challenge is competence. The Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, is responsible for this area within the project Fordonsdalen React. Several companies in the region will benefit from various initiatives that strengthen their ability to adapt. KTH develops a completely new reskilling learning platform that is adapted to the needs of the industry, built with new smart technology and with new ways of working to meet personal learning requirements. The result is expected to be a real upskilling in a key area of transition for the enrolled companies.

The Fordonsdalen React project is a collaboration between Region Stockholm, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Kista Science City during 2021-2023. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. Region Stockholm is the project owner. The project Competence shift for a sustainable automotive industry is co-financed by the Region Stockholm Project Fund for sustainable regional development. The overall goal of this collaboration is that the green and digital transformation of SMEs in the region's automotive industry leads to increased innovation capacity and increased competitiveness.

Competence shift for a sustainable automotive industry

This is a one-year collaboration project between the Region Stockholm, KTH, Södertälje Science Park and FKG – the Scandinavian Automotive Supplier Association. focusing on green transition. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The automotive industry is undergoing a major transformation driven by climate challenges and a rapid technological development. This transformation requires a new and intensified sustainability work. KTH has developed a course "Sustainable Transport systems" for Scania. Scania quickly gained useful knowledge that they turned into improvement projects in order to put sustainability even more in focus in the business. The project includes adapting existing course to SMEs so that the project contributes to an increased competence at the company and that their sustainability work can be developed and accelerated.
