Sweden is a global leader in industries such as the aerospace, automotive, biomedical, tooling and packaging industries. The expertise from these companies has fostered an environment in which many new and successful technologies have emerged.

Climate change and rising oil prices continue to be drivers for developing modern materials that come from natural and renewable resources. A successful transition to the more sustainable production of chemicals and materials is important to Sweden as a country.
