The testbed portal is a part of the government initiative “Testbädd Sverige” (Testbed Sweden), and aims to stimulate Swedish research and innovation. Backing the project are also a number of national authorities and governmental organizations such as Vinnova, Energimyndigheten and IQ Samhällsbyggnad.
swedishtestbeds.com aims to gather testbeds within the area of built environment, with a focus on sustainability. The platform will facilitate communication between organizations with projects in these areas and testbed organizations who can offer possibilities to test, verify or develop ideas and methods. The hope is the function as a hub and catalyst for the development of Swedish innovation.
