TRATON—the commercial vehicle arm of the Volkswagen Group that includes MAN, Scania and Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus—and the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) will start a long-term cooperation that will initially focus on cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
TRATON and RISE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will serve as a platform for a long-term and strategic relationship. As the first step, the cooperation will concentrate on cybersecurity and AI, but the project portfolio will be flexible over time.
Scania, being part of TRATON and based and incorporated in Sweden, will have a special role in the strategic relationship. Together with TRATON, Scania will drive the cooperation, which is also open to the TRATON brands MAN, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus, and RIO.
RISE is a Swedish Government Research Institute with 2,800 employees and has the largest cybersecurity group in Sweden. It is a member of the European Cybersecurity Organization (ECSO).
