GO – faster product development

Faster product development with GO

Going from an innovative idea to an actual product can be challenging and exciting at the same time. Therefore, it is important to have the right skills, contacts and technical resources. To succeed with this, we offer the working model GO.

GO is a work method developed to facilitate, accelerate, and minimize the risks and costs associated with product development. GO is about making international cutting-edge expertise, technology, and industrial resources available to smaller companies and innovation companies. We can also help with applications for funding.

GO is a unique collaboration between industry, academia, the Paper Province cluster, RISE and Region Värmland that is offered to you who want to develop a product, industrial production or industrial process with a connection to lignin.

Depending on where you stand in your idea or product development, we have designed different work packages to start from.

Get started – GoAware

Discover what opportunities there is and learn what lignin and different technologies can do for you and your business.

With GoAware we aim to inspire and educate. We share world-leading knowledge and expertise in the field of lignin and green value-businesses. LignoCity can act as a guide and advisor on the first steps towards finding a way to develop your products and strengthen your business.

Create real results – GoProduct

GoProduct helps you realize your first product or industrial process. To do so we use support from technical world-leading expertise and industrial resources that previously only were available to large companies.

GoProduct gives access to what you need to produce the first product. For example, instruments and tools, workshops, environments such as industrial floors and facilities to quickly build functional prototypes or pilot machines.

The support you receive is tailored to your needs and adapted to speed up the product development at a minimal cost.

When taking part of GoProduct you will be assigned a personal guide. A person to lead the way, both to national and international industry networks and resources.

Go bigger – GoScale

Going from prototype to production can be a risky step. It includes machine investments, construction of manufacturing processes, certifications, recruitment of manufacturing personnel and risks of additional costs due to error decisions or operational problems. Hence GoScale is tailored to create a scalable production at minimum risk and minimum cost in small controllable steps.

In addition to the access to technical competence and possibilities available by GoProduct, you get access to RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden, structures for certifications, contacts to leading R&D departments and Paper Province – Industry Entrance support.

While taking part of GoScale you will be assigned a personal guide who will connect you to networks and resources.
