Synocus supporting formation of national ecosystems in mobility, manufacturing, and intralogistics

Synocus has played a key role in the development of three multi-year national ecosystem formation projects which are cofounded by leading industrial actors and Tekes – Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation.

These three projects will establish national ecosystems which gather together companies, both large and SME, and public and private organizations, aiming to form lasting ecosystems to support the growth of these industries. All three projects have been initiated through joint road mapping with key industrial players during 2017 Summer and Autumn and the ecosystems development projects will be running to July 31st, 2019. Synocus role has been and will be to co-develop the ecosystem core concepts and road maps as well as achieving concrete evolution and benefits of the ecosystems. The ecosystems are:

– The Autonomous Vehicles and Mobility services ecosystem (AVM) formation project, which Synocus developed in active cooperation with the ecosystem’s orchestrator the World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities (WALCC) and its partner FLOU will address the thriving market in mobility solutions and technologies. The project will form a national ecosystem in the field of mobility and transportation to support the growth of Finnish SMEs in the field and establish Finland as a global leader in the development of the new technologies and services called for by the transformation of transportation.

– The Digital Design and Manufacturing Excellence ecosystem (DDME) project was developed in close collaboration with global engineering company Sandvik, and it will explore the impact of digitalization on the heavy manufacturing industry. The vision is to create the world’s leading ecosystem for designing and manufacturing mobile machinery.

– The Intralogistixx (IXX) project was developed together with materials handling company Rocla and will address the changes to come in intralogistics under digitalization, robotization, and new business models. The aim is to initiate a collaboration and internationalization enhancing platform & ecosystem for intralogistics transformation through developing comprehensive intralogistics services to industry, addressing end-to-end pull-controlled consumer-driven commerce, as well as intralogistics systems acceleration.
