Research and innovation infrastructures

Internationally successful research is dependent on advanced research facilities. In recent years, Europe has invested significant amounts in state-of-the-art experimental facilities like this, which Sweden is also financing. As a small country, we need to take advantage of that.

The potential for Swedish companies, supplier and user groups to become even better at using access to Europe's large research infrastructures is a little dizzying. More competitive companies, a Sweden that continues to be at the forefront as an innovative country and more solutions to difficult societal challenges are some of the gains.

Sweden today has its own research infrastructures such as ESS and MAX IV outside Lund and SciLifeLab in the Stockholm region. In addition, a large number of research facilities around the world are also open to Swedish actors. The facilities will provide researchers from the academic world and industry with instruments and technical resources and contribute to innovations and solutions to various challenges facing society.

Vinnova wants to ensure an increased and broadened utilization of the advanced research infrastructure and that Sweden utilizes the full potential of its investments. We need to raise awareness of how industry, the health sector, society and the population can benefit from large-scale research infrastructure. Cooperation across borders, knowledge and resilience are more important than ever to be able to meet the challenges facing society.
