Presentation of the Region

The industry profile of the Örebro Region is well in line with several of the pilots of Vanguard Initiative, giving us a wide range of opportunities for industrial collaborations. The common denominator for the region´s key industry is advanced manufacturing. Large multi-national industrial corporations as well as small, highly specialized SME´s make up the base of the industrial landscape.
Leading applied research on sensors and autonomous systems as well new and upcoming national initiatives on AI are hosted at the regional Örebro University, leaving the Örebro Region well positioned for future industrial development and further engagement in inter-regional activities

RIS3 Priorities

Region Örebro county have identified Food in the intersection of culinary arts, health and sustainability one of two focus areas. This priority carries good prospects of contributing to positive social development in this area. Knowledge creation in this area can contribute to innovation in the food industry as such, and help developing nutrition with benefits for a wider societal perspective through public meals. In that aspect, the public sector can be a very important driver of innovation and implementation of new solutions.

The second priority, autonomous, digital and intelligent production systems, targets the strong research at Örebro University around autonomous systems, in particular AI and applications including health and wellbeing as well as industrial applications.

The Örebroregion is active in a pioneering effort with our neighboring regions of East Central Sweden (NUTS SE12) where we collaborate in four focus areas based on Smart Specalisation. One of them is a thematic area of relevance for Vanguard, “Smart Industry”.
