As a strategy node, Johanneberg Science Park will focus on three of the five sectors the Swedish Energy Agency has developed energy-efficiency strategies for –resource-efficient buildings, a flexible and robust energy system and fossil-free transport. The remaining two strategies refer to future-proof trade & consumption and world-class production.
When an actor becomes a strategy node, the Swedish Energy Agency expects it to commit to strengthening cross-sectoral cooperation among local and regional players, thereby contributing to the sectoral strategies. Strategy nodes are pioneers in their field, who get other actors around them to operate in line with the goals of the strategies and formulate new commitments. Apart from Johanneberg Science Park, there are currently five other such nodes in the country, including in Boden, Dalarna, Örebro and Uppsala.
Johanneberg Science Park, whose commitment as a strategy node will be rooted in the work it already does today, will shape and coordinate innovative partnerships in the field of social planning. One example of the collaborative arena’s work is Klimat 2030 – Västra Götaland is changing, an initiative of the Västra Götaland region and the County Administrative Board to reach the region’s climate target, in which Johanneberg Science Park coordinates the key area of healthy and climate-smart housing and premises and that of a greater market for bio-based materials and propellants. Johanneberg Science Park also coordinated the EU-funded partnership Fossil-free Energy Districts (FED), which set up a local energy marketplace on Chalmers University’s Johanneberg campus, and is involved in several major urban development project, like the Forsåker project in Mölndal, and Green City Zone, a City of Gothenburg initiative involving testbeds for emission-free transportation.
