Science and innovation are at the heart of government strategy for promoting prosperity and growth. Research and knowledge is increasingly developed and transferred through international collaboration which provides opportunities to work with the best in the world, exchange students and researchers, and gain access to large scale international facilities; leading to mutual benefits for the UK and Sweden.
To promote international collaboration the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office jointly fund the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN), based in 28 countries around the world.
SIN Sweden exists to facilitate policy exchange between the UK and Sweden, and to stimulate collaborative partnerships between the two countries – particularly focussing on Horizon 2020 matchmaking.
In addition to supporting policy exchange, proactive SIN Sweden work focuses on four strategic areas:
- Life Science
- Low Carbon Technologies
In support of the UK Science and Innovation strategy SIN Sweden is part of the SIN Nordic team and shares these four priorities across the region.
For an introductory brief which covers the local Science and Innovation landscape, UK priorities and successes in Sweden, read the UK Science and Innovation Network Country Snapshot here.
We aim to proactively seek out UK-Swedish collaboration in our priority areas of interest, and to reactively assess any potential projects that are suggested to us. If you are looking to work with researchers or innovators in the UK or Sweden then please get in touch with the SIN Sweden officers.
