This digital event (free of charge) focused on how to enable innovation that has a real impact on our society, environment and economy. Despite Sweden being a climate front runner, we still have a responsibility to contribute to the Global Goals.
During the conference we presented how Swedish agencies and industry are paving the way for the Swedish innovation ecosystem to experiment and grow. Discover some great real life examples of how actors are successfully innovating and finally learn about the impact these innovations have had on our society.
The event is dedicated to fostering international collaboration, so whether you are a startup, intermediary or corporate, working in the public sector, civil society, academia or a government agency, there will be something for everyone.
About the event
Sweden Innovation Days’ primary goal is to provide an international platform to share best practices, knowledge and meet innovation partners from around the world. This year’s focus will be how we can enable innovation that has a positive environmental, economic and social impact. Sweden is a world leader within innovation but we need to continuously strive towards more innovative solutions, both theoretically and practically.
Sweden Innovation Days will feature a digital Mainstage program with key experts, case studies and interviews that go beyond the theoretical to explore the practical ways innovation can address today’s biggest sustainability challenges. Additionally, there will be a broad range of Side Events conducted by our fantastic conference partners to dive deeper into the important topics covered on the digital Mainstage across all three days.
The conference is a cooperation between Vinnova – Sweden’s Innovation Agency, the Swedish Energy Agency, Formas – a Swedish research council for sustainable development, SISP – Swedish Incubators and Science Parks, Ignite Sweden, AI Sweden and Business Sweden. This year Sweden Innovation Days will coincide with Sveriges Innovationsriksdag in Lund.
Sweden Innovation Days has previously taken place in 2022 and 2020. Last year’s event saw over 5000 registered participants joining from 97 different countries.
The goal of this conference is to inspire and exchange knowledge on how we can mobilise innovation projects that make a difference in an impactful way. The program will move beyond the theoretical and present practical methods as well as success cases highlighting how to achieve this. Each day will therefore focus on a different stage of the innovation process.
Exploring how government agencies can foster greater innovation at all levels.
