Some of the main challenges in the infrastructure industry are to reduce costs, reduce energy consumption and greenhouse emissions, improve safety and drive economic growth with fast, efficient movement of people and goods. These goals call for new innovations that are central to R2S mission.
- Nynas strongly supports the research in this field. It is essential that such research takes advantage of and build upon the knowledge that already exist. Being involved in R2S Center gives Nynas the opportunity to join force and collaborate with other stakeholders in transportation infrastructure in dealing with important common challenges and in finding sustainable solutions to these challenges, says Per Redelius, Chief Scientist at Nynas, and continues:
- It’s most important to find better ways to transfer academic knowledge into practical use.
