Vinter Competition

Vinnova invites companies and organizations to participate in the innovation competition Winter to develop smart solutions to real problems and at the same time challenge how we share and use sensitive data. Sweden needs innovation in the broadest sense to succeed in transforming entire systems and adjusting to a sustainable future. We also need to develop our way of working and collaborating on innovation. We start with health data linked to type 1 diabetes.

The offer in brief

What can you apply for?

Winter is an innovation competition. For a limited period, contestants are given access to health data relating to type 1 diabetes to develop digital solutions for the benefit of people with diabetes, their relatives and care.

Who can apply?

Swedish companies and organizations in the private, public and non-profit sector can register for Winter. The competition has three categories: development of consumer and producer services and development of infrastructure.

How much can you apply for?

Winter provides access to unique data and an opportunity to participate in developing events. We do not fund participation, but all finalists are offered a dialogue about possible funding to further develop their idea when the competition ends.
