What we do

Innovation Lab for me is a place where we identify, explore and validate, new ideas and new business opportunities, driven by trends in society. We work closely together with the truck divisions and business areas in Volvo Group, as well as partners, customers and start-ups. It’s a place with a lot of energy, where we have fun and accelerate the ideas all the way to the market

Close partnership

At Innovation Lab projects are conducted in a collaborative manner by multidisciplinary teams. Ideas and initiatives can originate from other Volvo Group business areas, ideas born in workshops with the start-up community, or start with a new insight from analyzing data from our connected assets.

Volvo Group Innovation Lab - Research and insights generate value for customers

Insights for creation

Research and insight collection is an important part of ensuring a clear understanding of how the services developed will be used in the real world. Combining insights across industry sectors, digital trends and data from connected assets we have great opportunities to find killer applications and generate real value for our customers and Volvo Group.

Volvo Group Innovation Lab - Rapid prototyping and fast design sprints

Speed & innovation

At Innovation Lab we see value in doing things differently than traditional corporate functions. Therefore, we work with agile methods in diverse and focused concept and venture teams. We believe in rapid prototyping and in-market experimentation to get early customer feedback for continuous improvement in further iterations. This means that in fast design sprints, teams at Innovation Lab can go from idea to validated business prototype in just a couple of weeks. And that the value in a new service can be proven early, before investing too much work and resources.
