The foundation for the Strategic Innovation Programme STRIM is the strategic innovation Roadmap that has been established in collaboration with the industry, institute and academy. The roadmap defines visions for nine thematic areas related to primary and secondary raw materials. The research and innovation is defined in the short, medium and long-term – based on key indicators. All areas have defined actions that can be implemented within national and international initiatives for research, development and innovation.ca
The first roadmap was published in 2013 and since then it has been revised once. Now we are about to update the roadmap for the second time. The work is based on the industry’s upcoming challenges and driving forces. During August and September, a series of workshops will be. The first workshop was conducted at the end of August and specifically addressed to the boards of Svemin, Bergforsk and SIP STRIM where we focused on motivations, challenges and visions. The result of the visionary workshop will be used as input for the two upcoming open workshops. In the first workshop we will elaborate on the visions and challenges that emerged in the meeting with the boards. In step two, important inputs from the thematic areas are to be panned out.
The process of writing the new roadmap starts in October. A writing workshop with the thematic leaders will be held on October 8th. The roadmap will be finalized by the turn of the year and will be presented at the Future mines and minerals conference in Stockholm in January.
