What do you want to test?
We can test our most pressing challenges in Virtual Gothenburg Lab here and now.
What is your challenge?
If you work with urban planning, mobility, sustainability, climate change, circular economy, health, inclusion or other issues related to the city - and if you also want to help create a long-term sustainable Gothenburg - then you have found the right place! We work on the digital twin under many different themes!
Come on in!
Transport and mobility
Climate resilience and adaptation
Democracy and civic participation
Health and safety
Sustainability and circular economy
Construction and infrastructure
This is what we have already done
The test bed has carried out five pilot studies with the aim of developing Gothenburg's digital twin, Virtual Gothenburg. The pilots were selected on the basis of challenges faced by different administrations in the city and where there is significant potential for using the possibilities of testing future scenarios through digitised processes and visualisation.

Why do we need a lab?
We are experiencing a transition to a digital world. This transition is a process of change that not only entails considerable potential but also major challenges. In Virtual Gothenburg Lab, we are looking for ways to exploit digitalisation and the city's digital twin to tackle the global challenges of the future, and take decision-making to the next level. In order to understand the best way to create value rapidly in this period of transition, we need to be able to test and be given a chance to fail, before subsequently developing and expanding what is needed to take us in the desired direction. It is a long but exciting and inspiring journey, where the focus is not only on use in terms of technology and data, but also on work processes and business models.
Virtual Gothenburg is a reflection of the physical reality and allows us to visualize and simulate different projects related to the city. The digital twin contains large amounts of urban data on everything from trees to street lighting and will continue to evolve in tandem with the test bed. The business world is a major contributor to this development work, as it on the basis of good interaction that the work to bring about change gains momentum, and the test bed is the place where we can meet.
Your needs in focus!
