Proposals to research and innovation policy

To meet the major societal challenges we face, new knowledge and innovation is needed throughout society. To the government's research policy bill, Vinnova proposes important strategic initiatives to increase the pace of the transition to a sustainable society. Our ability to solve these challenges is crucial for our future as a competitive knowledge nation, for our business and for our welfare.
