Since the end of January, VTI is a partner in f3, the Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels. f3 is a national knowledge centre for collaboration between industry actors, universities, institutes, and government agencies committed to contributing to a sustainable transport sector.
“Our participation is well in line with VTI’s instructions to develop knowledge and conduct research in order to achieve the transport policy goals and to ensure that knowledge on the transport system is constantly being improved,” says Mikael Johannesson, Research Director at VTI.
The aim of f3’s activities is to contribute analyses to assist politicians, government agencies, industry actors, and other organisations in making decisions that are based on science. The operation is also intended to increase systematic understanding of how development and the use of sustainable and renewable fuels can contribute to the realisation of a vehicle fleet that is not dependent on fossil fuels.
“VTI, which has an interdisciplinary base in its operations and a large contact network covering different actors of the transport sector including research bodies and authorities both nationally and internationally, will be able to make an important contribution to f3’s activities,” says Kristina Holmgren, f3 coordinator at VTI.
The centre comprises 17 different actors and works closely with the Swedish Energy Agency, Region Västra Götaland and other public financiers.
