Develops Sweden's innovation capacity for sustainable growth and benefiting society
We promote sustainable growth by funding needs-driven research and stimulating collaborations between companies, universities, research institutes and the public sector. We are also the national contact agency for the EU framework programme for research and innovation.
Our programmes and calls target actors in society who are important for Sweden’s innovativeness such as research-focused companies, universities, research institutes and public sector organisations. Some of our calls are open to international and bilateral collaborations.
A century ago Sweden was among the poorest nations in Europe. Today it’s a world leader in innovation world thanks to its advanced society and welfare state, an array of successful multinational companies, a commitment to gender equality and a strong belief in the individual.
