Mapping of Nordic test and demonstration facilities

Technological Institute

MDI participated in a joint project in which Nordic test and demonstration facilities were mapped. Test and demonstration facilities offer knowledge-intensive manufacturing industry the kind of environment where they can test their ideas and recieve information back in order to improve their operations and enhance competitiveness. The project was carried out together with the Danish Technological Institute, which led the consortium and the Swedish company, Kontigo and Norwegian Sintef. MDI’s task was to execute a survey of national actors who offer test and demonstration facilities and to present some examples of the successful usage of test and demonstration facilities. In addition to the report, an interactive tool was created, as a result of the project, with which it is possible to search for different actors offering test and demonstration facilities.
