Competence transition/Reskilling

The Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, is responsible for this initiative. Several companies in the region will benefit from various initiatives that strengthen their ability to adapt. KTH will carry out analysis work together with each company. Assessment of the company's current business is carried out in relation to the ongoing industry and societal transformation related to new transport and vehicle systems. From hereon the gap in the company's skills are identified and a competence plan for the individual company is outlined. In the third step, a reskilling training pilot is developed that addresses a strategically important area(s). 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. 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 (Royal Institute of Technology), 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.
