The initiative comes from Sweden’s innovation agency, Vinnova, and is managed by Lindholmen Science Park. An international steering group provides guidance and support to prioritize the efforts.

To support and challenge the Future Mobility team a steering group has been formed. These individuals all eat collaboration for breakfast and provide deep insight into many opportunities in Sweden and the US.
