Vinnova Innovation Day

From challenge to innovation! This is the theme when representatives from business, the public sector, universities and others gather at Vinnova's Innovation Day to discuss new solutions and collaborations that can meet the major societal challenges of our time. These include the future of transport, smart cities and connected industry.

Last year, the government launched five strategic collaboration programs to meet societal challenges and strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness. Vinnova’s Innovation Day will discuss what the programs may mean in practice.

Participants include State Secretary Niklas Johansson, the government’s national coordinator for life science Anders Lönnberg, Professor of Environmental Science Johan Rockström, Ericsson’s Head of Research Sara Mazur and Vinnova’s Director General Charlotte Brogren.

The day will also see the announcement of the winners of the Innovation Talents Award, which this year is given to women who can be role models and inspire others.
