Recording of the session ‘Co-innovate with/as Swedish partners in ITEA’ online now

The Sweden Innovation Days 2023, a three-day digital event focussing on enabling innovation for a sustainable world, concluded on March 23. The event was organised by Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, SISP, Ignite Sweden, Business Sweden & AI Sweden and was dedicated to fostering international collaboration and featured a digital mainstage programme, key experts, case studies, and interviews. A range of side events complemented the programme, enabling participants to delve deeper into the topics covered on the mainstage.

On 23 March, ITEA and Vinnova organised a dedicated side event session focusing on learning more about how you can co-innovate with/as Swedish partners in international ITEA research projects on software innovation and digital transition. Sweden has been an active partner in ITEA since its start, with an exceptionally strong focus and participation in Smart engineering and Smart health projects. The continuous success of Swedish partners is demonstrated by the fact that since 2016 Swedish partners have been part of one or more ITEA Award of Excellence winning projects every year.

During the side event session, Susanne Liljeblad from Vinnova shared information about the eligibility criteria and funding outlook in Sweden for innovative RD&I projects and ITEA Chairwoman Zeynep Sarılar introduced ITEA and its processes.

Additionally, Mark van Helvoort, Program Manager Public-Private Partnerships MRI at Philips, showed the strong outcomes and benefits of participation in ITEA projects collaborating with Swedish partners followed by Hubertus Tummescheit, CSO at Modelon, who presented their journey (within the ITEA programme) and advised on how you can successfully participate in ITEA as (Swedish) SME.
