For Test Arena Kongsberg - City&Lab the technology is not a goal in itself, but seen as a tool to develop sustainable mobility.
We are organized as a cooperation with a steering committee, workgroups, test sites, with a very interesting project portfolio. These are our labs, and what we, together with our partners learn and produce are presented in our Toolbox.
The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the environment. Activities in City&Lab are especially rooted in goals 8, 9, 11 and 13.
“Areas that can drive progress across all 17 SDGs: financing; resilience; sustainable and inclusive economies; more effective institutions; local action; better use of data; and harnessing science, technology and innovation with a greater focus on digital transformation. In everything we do, we must diligently ensure that policy choices leave no one behind, and that national efforts are supported by effective international cooperation, grounded in a commitment to diplomacy and crisis prevention.”
(The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2019)
