NRP II is the National programme for the research and development.

The main focus of the program is the research and technological development of software tools and applications enabling more efficient, faster and more reliably connect various entities to the level of  individuals. This will be enabled through optimized infrastructure and tools assurance two-way interactive mobile communications, while the use of information resources andwide application of knowledge databases.
It is therefore a technical solution to the intensive information networked society.
Research activities will focus on research on new platforms with a high degree of interoperability (connectivity), capable of massive parallel use (audiovisual
platforms and open platforms for various types application tasks). This will be a successful component interconnect solutions into larger units.
In response to the above infrastructure will be developed intelligent
decision-making, management and other modules based on the knowledge and intensively searching relevant data processing and often massive datasets.

The transformation to the information society poses one of the greatest challenges for the coming years. Integration of the concept of sustainabi- lity into the development and application of information and communication technologies must play a central role in this process. This requires tools which provide businesses and industry with the necessary confidence to act. Project NIK addresses this challenge.    The objective of the project "Sustainability in the Information and Communication Technologies" (Nachhaltigkeit in der Informations- und Kommunikationstechnik, or NIK) is to show industry how the economic potential of information and communication technologies (ICT) can be brought into harmony with the ecological and social requirements of sustainable development. This will be done by producing "paths of innovation" which identify the research and development necessary to attain sustain- ability in ICT. The participants of this project are making use of the instrument of road mapping to achieve this objective.

 The core mission of the LETS research program is to identify, explore and suggest ways that Sweden can implement low-carbon energy and transport systems for 2050, in order to reach the ambitious climate policy objectives suggested by the 2°C target.   

Hence, the overarching research question is:
What societal transitions are implied by low-carbon futures and how can thesetransitions be governed and implemented to meet challenging climate policy objectives? 

LETS will combine scientific excellence with close user interaction to ensure relevance and efficient dissemination of knowledge and results among key stakeholders. The objective is to produce new knowledge, but also to synthesize and interpret existing knowledge for more informed choices by decision makers, planners and other stakeholders. 

Low-carbon futures necessitate shifts to carbon-free energy carriers produced in low-carbon conversion processes and changes in consumption behavior. When accommodating such shifts, existing political and administrative regimes are challenged by the need for climate policy integration across policy domains, dynamic consistency, new planning tools and processes, ceding power to the appropriate level, etc.

Output
The outputs from LETS will range from high-level research based policy advice to tools and guidelines for the “street level” implementing agencies and other administrative bodies. The research team brings together key disciplines from social sciences, economics and engineering (i.e. energy and transport system studies).
