IT’S TIME TO TAKE RESEARCH PROJECTS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Today, too many innovations never leave the lab. Far too few innovations become new businesses and jobs. Wargön Innovation wants to change this.

Ideas and research projects need to take the step from the laboratory-gram scale to the pre-industrial scales kilo and tonne. Often, the kilo step is missing which means that good innovations never reach the market.

Wargön Innovation creates prerequisites for the pre-industrial scale. We generate credibility for both investors and future customers. Research projects are given the opportunity to be developed further within a new environment and by using new resources.

Wargön Innovation creates the conditions necessary to take research projects from the lab to pilot facilities, and then into commercial volumes.

GIVING RESEARCH PROJECTS WHAT THEY NEED

Wargön Innovation aims to become a national development and knowledge centre for process and production technology focusing on new sustainable materials.
We have the skills and infrastructure to take material innovations from lab to commercially viable pilot volumes.

INDUSTRY AND SCIENCE IN PARTNERSHIP

Wargön and the west coast region have a strong industry tradition including forestry and textile production. Wargön Innovation has a passion for innovation and well-established partnerships with industry, higher education, institutes and public actors.
