Digitalisation is the single most significant change factor of our age. The strategic innovation programme (SIP) Smart Built Environment is a plan that outlines how the built environment sector can contribute to Sweden’s journey to the global forefront of the new opportunities of digitalisation, so that we can achieve intelligent, sustainable cities, manage our resources more efficiently and reduce carbon emissions.

Before the Road Collapses

This broadcast was a part of Sweden Innovation days 2024. Changes in land use, land development, and evolving climatic conditions significantly impact the risk of wear and tear and structural collapse. This encompasses not only the ground beneath and surrounding buildings but also infrastructure solutions. Leveraging new technologies, modern materials, and enhanced monitoring and controls, substantial preventive sures can be implemented helping to build a more resilient built environment.

Change-driving ideas today – the norm in construction tomorrow

This broadcast was a part of Sweden Innovation days 2023. The construction industry has historically been slow to adopt new technology. Meanwhile, modern society has reached a turning point, with major challenges on the horizon, challenges that the construction industry must also overcome.

Rising construction costs, a scarcity of resources, decarbonisation requirements and concerns about the availability of financing are fuelling a growing interest in developing, testing, and implementing digital solutions on construction sites.

Connected construction sites and life-saving smart helmets, the use of geodata in generative design processes, and cutting-edge cloud services that facilitate quality control. Join our seminar and learn about some of the innovative ideas and projects being developed and tested in the Swedish innovation program Smart Built Environment.
