Cities face major climate challenges. In my research, I investigate how digital transformation and ecosystems contribute to increased collaboration between the public and private sectors in the development of innovative solutions, as well as the emergence of potential business models.

More about the project
For the past three years, Skanska, Södra and Combitech have been working together within a project called Crossways Växjö. The collaboration has been broadened and now includes Växjö energi and Wexnet as well as Siemens and Region Kronberg.
The group collaborates to find the best solutions for a new district, Bäckaslöv. The idea is to develop a smart and sustainable district.
We are investigating a variety of solutions in different aspects of smart cities. The first projects in the portfolio are related to innovations in energy and a digital platform that will enable new business models.
