The network included 15 large companies such as Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, Toyota, Sigma and Greenworks to support the need of the surface designers in the market.

“The node will contribute with expertise in product development to ensure that research generates innovation,” says Conny Larsson.
His first assignment as ambassador will be to collaborate with the Jönköping company Resinex in planning a seminar in new polymeric materials.
