Developing mobility services
In the 20th century the car was the sign of freedom and success. In the near future it will be the platform for mobility services and other services. The user experience provided is something completely different when You don´t own Your car and instead use mobility services. The value of the future mobilty market is estimated to be many times larger than todays car market. The race is already at full speed for the right technology and to capture a large customer base.
- Are we in the Swedish cluster prepared to move fast enough?
