Bioenvision Technology join MobilityXlab!

Bioenvision Technology join MobilityXlab to collaborate with leaders in the mobility industry! 

– We are thrilled to announce that Bioenvision Technology are nominated and will join this years MobilityXlab! This means that we will work with some of the leaders in the automotive market worldwide!

The future of transportation and mobility needs to be climate-neutral, safe and connected. To help reach these goals faster, five startups were invited to join MobilityXlab, the platform to promote collaboration between emerging companies and mobility leaders CEVT, Ericsson, Polestar, Veoneer, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group and Zenseact.

Bioenvision Technology join MobilityXlab and the startups joining the 11th batch of MobilityXlab are: Actasys (United States), Bioenvision (Norway), Entroview (France), Fever Energy (Sweden), and Provizio (Ireland). They will now participate in the program for at least six months to co-create solutions in technologies ranging from energy grid flexibility for electric vehicles to bio-based materials.

By joining the program, the startups get access to an important mobility cluster in Gothenburg, Sweden. To Nils Mösko, Chairperson at MobilityXlab and Head of Strategy and Business Development at Polestar, that is one of the main benefits of the program. He says: “West Sweden, especially Gothenburg, is such an exciting region for mobility and tech development. There is a lot of potential in tech development right now and in the future, and it is great to be able to gather startups and the industry here.”

To be invited into the program, a startup needs to be selected by at least two of its industry partners. This reinforces knowledge sharing and increases the outcomes for Proof of Concept (PoC) and validation projects. Barry Lunn, CEO and co-founder of the startup Provizio, highlights the benefits of being able to validate their technology in MobilityXlab. He says: “The focus that MobilityXlab has on validation projects is what attracted us. It is extremely valuable for a startup to work together with industry experts and get a deep understanding of what is their real-life application for our products.”

Provizio produces a system that fuses their proprietary imaging radars with lidar, and camera imaging to expand the vehicle’s perception of the traffic conditions or obstacles. This can improve the deployment of autonomous vehicles and increase their safety, contributing to the Vision Zero goal of no fatalities or serious injuries through road accidents.

MobilityXlab was founded in 2017 with the mission to accelerate global innovation based on the Swedish collaboration culture. And after five years and 18 accelerations through commercial contracts or partnerships, the formula has proved to be a success. Katarina Brud, director at MobilityXlab says: “Our core differential is structured collaboration, and to achieve that we involve the partners in all steps of the program. This coordination and deep involvement are what allows the collaboration to successfully happen between the startups and our partners, but also among the partners themselves.”

“We have reached almost 100 validation projects in the program, which attests that startupcorporate collaboration is very efficient to attract talent, enhance the innovation ecosystem, and strengthen the Swedish lead in the mobility sector,” she concludes.

The selection process for MobilityXlab takes place twice a year and the next application period opens in August 2023.
