Telecom company Telenor is the newest partner in the Lindholmen Science Park in Göteborg, further reinforcing the research centre, primarily in the fields of telematics and mobile user behaviour.
The decision to make Telenor a new main owner of the Lindholmen Science Park was revealed at the park’s annual general meeting. A new, strong partner tied to the park will offer many opportunities.
The Lindholmen Science Park is currently owned by Chalmers University of Technology, the City of Göteborg, Business Region Göteborg and several players in the business sector. Telenor will be joining big names like Ericsson, AB Volvo, Volvo Cars, Saab and TeliaSonera. The Swedish Road Administration and the University of Gothenburg have collaborative agreements with the Lindholmen Science Park on a corresponding level.
Mats Lundquist, business area manager for companies at Telenor Sverige AB, will be the company’s representative in the Lindholmen Science Park board of directors. “This is an opportunity for us to collaborate in projects between the business and university sectors,” he says. “Sweden has become one of our key markets, spearheading development in many fields.”
Telenor has a strong position in the field of telematics, with a special focus on applications for the vehicle industry. The partnership with the Lindholmen Science Park aims to further enhance that position.
“The expertise represented in the Lindholmen Science Park gives us an excellent forum for the continued development of joint telematics projects,” Lundquist says. “It also offers a broader base for research and development regarding user behaviour and mobile working methods.”
Several of the testing and development environments in the Lindholmen Science Park have led to the establishment of international standards, for example in intelligent transport systems. Cross-pollination between different fields of expertise results in new solutions and technological innovations that create growth and a sustainable society.
