IVA's Smart Industry
Through IVA’s Smart industry project the Academy wants to stimulate digital transformation in small and medium-sized enterprises by, for example, highlighting and sharing good examples. The project originates from Smart industry – a new industrialisation strategy for Sweden (Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications 2015) and mainly operates through the Smart Industry competition.
The project started in 2016, based on the idea of drawing attention to the digitalisation of small and medium-sized enterprises through a competition. Today, digitalisation is increasingly a natural part of daily operations. But the differences between companies are significant, and the challenges to succeed many.
Digitalisation is a prerequisite for a sustainable transformation of Swedish industry. The project IVA's Smart Industry works to stimulate the digitalisation of small and medium-sized enterprises, SMEs, and contribute to strengthening Swedish industry's competitiveness and green transition.
