Your ideas can help to shape our world

At Volvo Group we pride ourselves in the strength of ideas and innovation. We work closely with individual inventors, newly founded startups and others to develop ideas that can make our world a better place.

Open to great ideas

Innovation and fresh thinking are crucial for the growth and advancement of any industry, including transport. The ever-increasing global population and urbanization demand more efficient and sustainable modes of transport. Traditional methods alone cannot keep up with these demands; therefore, it is essential to adopt new technologies and approaches that can revolutionize the way we move people and goods around our cities.  The need for creative ideas has never been higher. Fresh thinking also means considering new business models and partnerships across multiple industries to optimize infrastructure usage and reduce costs while improving the customer experience. Ultimately, embracing change through continuous innovation will result in safer, cleaner, and faster transport solutions.
