Ten areas for a sustainable future

In tackling complex challenges like social welfare, climate change and public health we have to think and do things differently. At Vinnova, we believe this means focusing on ten areas that are vital in creating a sustainable society.

Innovative products and new technologies cannot single handedly manage the change to a sustainable future. We need to think innovation at all levels and in our way of working, governing and cooperating.

To succeed we need clear goals and long-term initiatives. But we also need innovative solutions to work together with the infrastructure and regulations they coexist with.

In our ten chosen areas we stimulate innovation in the broadest sense:

  • We mobilise actors from different parts of society towards a common objective
  • We identify what needs to be done
  • We fund research and innovation

We involve different organisations and a wide range of competencies. Sustainability, gender equality and international competitiveness are prioritised themes in all ten areas.
