About TRIPLE F
Sweden aims to become one of the world’s first fossil-free welfare states, with the goal of zero atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. The conversion of the transportation sector is key to achieving high climate goals. The goal for 2030 is to reduce CO2 levels by 70%, compared with the 2010 levels for domestic transportation.
Achieving a quick conversion that does not negatively impact Sweden’s competitiveness requires an initiative that builds on a system view that accounts for all modes of transport, with a focus on the freight transportation system’s functionality. The challenges for the freight transportation sector vary between different industries and regions. Therefore, a shared goal, strong collaboration between all relevant operators, systematic efforts based on scientific grounds and strong leadership are needed to realize these plans.
Our vision is for Triple F to be a national mobilization of Sweden’s foremost experts working together towards a shared goal. The research is based on an interdisciplinary approach and operator-wide collaboration, focusing on developing knowledge that enables this transition. This program creates a basis for broad support among our politicians and for shaping policies, measures and laws to realize targets. Thanks to its unique collaborative climate, Sweden has taken a leading role in the international development needed to meet the climate challenge. Sweden has the potential to become a leader and set a good example internationally.
The program has two overarching goals: The first is to contribute results through the research and development of innovative solutions that result in clear steps toward transitioning to a fossil-fuel-independent freight transportation system, and thereby creating the conditions for broad implementation of new and existing solutions. The second is to create a platform for developing and spreading competence among operators, industries and regions. The program includes a doctoral program to educate tomorrow’s experts. The challenge-driven projects promote interdisciplinary competence and individual mobility.
