The solutions developed under the programme must make a clear contribution to one or more of the 17 Sustainable development goals laid out in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. Projects operating within the programme can tackle everything from climate change and health challenges to problems of inequality and the uneven distribution of resources.
Vinnova’s vision is that Sweden is an innovative force in a sustainable world. They help to build Sweden’s innovation capacity, contributing to sustainable growth. They base their work on the global sustainability development goals of the 2030 Agenda adopted by the United Nations.
They identify areas where their efforts can make a difference, and they create opportunities and incentives for organisations to work together to meet important societal challenges.
Vinnova stimulates collaborations where knowledge and skills from different perspectives meet and where organisations learn from each other. Their support gives companies and organisations the opportunity to experiment and test new ideas before they become profitable. Every year, Vinnova invests approximately SEK 3 billion in research and innovation.
