To the new government: IndTech strengthens Swedish competitiveness

Publicerad: 11 October 2022

But technology itself is not the only solution. We need to add a number of other ingredients such as collaboration, supply of skills and increased investments in R&D – conditions that facilitate the industry's digitization, and not least, a sustainability journey. Only then will we contribute to a strong, sustainable and competitive industry that lays the foundation for a thriving society. IndTech, en förkortning av Industrial Technology, är ett relativt nytt begrepp som innebär att kompetens och lösningar från it-branschen appliceras i industrin för att göra den mer smart, säker och hållbar. Branschen omsätter idag 105 miljarder kronor, eller hela 238 miljarder kronor, beroende på hur vi räknar. I runda slängar är det i nivå med basnäringarna, men med högre tillväxttakt och lönsamhet. Enkelt uttryckt: En fantastisk framtidsbransch för vårt land.

The IndTech industry thus has the potential to strengthen Swedish finances, contribute to welfare and, through the industry's green transition in combination with the availability of fossil-free electricity, also create a more sustainable society - both locally and globally.

The ingredients that politics now needs to contribute going forward are above all;

💰 Invest and create attractiveness to research and developent.

💡 Strengthen the competence supply within IndTech.

🤖 Be the lead in digitalisation.

🌱 Facilitate the industry's climate transition.

Now the new government must take responsibility for increasing the pace of the industry's transition. Give us, our member companies and partners the conditions, and we will make sure to lead the IndTech movement - for the good of the industry and Sweden.
