Volvo Cars’ Open Innovation Arena (OIA) seeks to explore solutions beyond today’s technical boundaries and business areas. Our projects aim to challenge the status quo of the mobility industry. Future Mobility Lab specializes in understanding future urban challenges and conceptualizing strategic mobility solutions accordingly. We are now looking for students to research and suggest solutions for localized micro production in an urban mobility context.

The main scope of this thesis is to explore the feasibility of localized micro production, meeting a problem space set by Volvo’s innovation organization. While some needs are pre-defined, others are to be determined within the scope of the project. 


The project requires a combination of knowledge from production and supply chain domains, as well as an understanding of product development. The team will be working independently, under frequent supervision by Volvo, in order to maintain a healthy balance between requirements and innovation.
