The Swedish Living Lab on Vehicle and Transport ICT (SVT-LL) is a competitive living lab for user-driven development of automotive and transport applications and services. The objective is to leverage Sweden’s strong cluster of automotive and transport firms through the development, adoption, and use of co-creation approaches to product and service innovation. SVT-LL is coordinated by the Viktoria Institute. 

The Swedish vehicle and transport innovation system currently consists of a mix of business, research, and governmental partners. This innovation system has emerged over many years and is supported by a number of different supporting initiatives. The role of the SVT-LL is to further enhance the capacity of the cluster to incorporate processes, methods, and tools for user involvement in the development of new applications and services.   SVT-LL has major partners, including vehicle manufacturers such as Saab Automobile, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Trucks, academic and research organizations such as Chalmers University of Technology, Jönköping International Business School, and Swedish ICT Research, innovation facilitators such as Test Site Sweden and Lindholmen Science Park, as well as a set of project partners and users in the innovation networks of each of these organizations.  The mission of SVT-LL is captured by the following three objectives:

- Improve existing open innovation networks: SVT-LL stimulates the production of useful knowledge for actors seeking to adopt ideas of open innovation in collaboration with partners in their innovation networks. This knowledge will be used to improve existing open and user innovation practices and result in new products and services at the participating partners of the Living Lab.

 

- Implement new open innovation practices: The LL facilitates knowledge sharing between partners to leverage their unique core competencies. In particular, this knowledge sharing is intended to generate business models, system descriptions, and process management knowledge on how to approach the new innovation landscape in the traditional industry sectors.

 

- Develop frameworks and tools for user innovation: It is imperative to develop frameworks and tools that provide guidelines for building boundary-spanning competence with the objective of leveraging open and user innovation in traditional industry settings in general and in vehicle and transport settings in particular.
