Swedish industrial and construction companies are increasingly seeking to automate their production processes and increase their efficiency. This trend is driven by cost savings, a shortage of qualified personnel and safety aspects. The largest country in Scandinavia is at the global forefront in the field of robotics and autonomous production technologies. Thanks to extensive research efforts, Swedish companies already have numerous projects in the pilot phase. At the same time, German companies are attracting great interest in Sweden with their innovative solutions. Therefore, numerous opportunities for future oriented technology partnerships between the two countries await.
