Göran Smith

Industrial PhD Candidate at the division of Design & Human Factors, Department of Industrial and Materials Science

Göran Smith is an industrial Ph.D. candidate in innovation for sustainable development. In his doctoral project, which is tied to K2 – the Swedish Research Centre for Public Transport, he studies the development and diffusion of Mobility as a Service (MaaS). The goal is to create better understanding of how institutional arrangements affect disruptive innovations during different phases of their lifecycles, from idea to societal impact, and of how the public sector can enable fruitful innovation collaborations with private firms without losing the ability to ensure societal benefits. Göran's research will also create a basis for long-term strategic decisions regarding Västra Götaland's future role in MaaS.
