Testimonials on how SWII supports innovation and R&D collaboration

Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative

Switzerland and Sweden face common challenges in our high-tech industries. Both countries need to be constantly innovative and improve their production systems to maintain a high degree of domestic industrial base. Being two of the world leaders in innovation, Switzerland and Sweden form natural partners in tackling these tasks.

SWII is a joint bilateral initiative with the overall objective to increase market oriented high-technology R&D projects between Switzerland and Sweden. Issuing bilateral calls for R&D project proposals and organizing networking conferences, SWII has catalyzed the creation of bilateral R&D consortia conducting close-to-market projects. Until today, more than 17 projects with a total project value of some 20 million Euros have formed in connection to the SWII activities.

The initiative is a result of the good bilateral relations between Swiss and Swedish research organizations and academia, companies and innovation agencies. It is also a direct spin off to the four Research and Technology Workshops conducted in 2009 and 2010 arranged by Business Sweden and Saab in co-operation with Swiss partners.

The steering group behind the initiative consists of the Swedish Innovation Promotion Agency VINNOVA, the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, Business Sweden and Saab.
