Societies face major challenges, not only in the environmental and climate
fields. Our innovative ability is a prerequisite for finding solutions to these
challenges. Sweden ranks internationally high on account of our favorable
conditions for innovation. However, much remains for also increasing the actual
outcome, in terms of new products and services. Here Sweden has unfortunately
declined during the past decade.
groundbreaking innovations come from Sweden, but in todays global competition
Sweden needs to further streamline its innovation policy.
National Innovators Council was
founded for this reason.
The sixteen constituent members of the Council possess first hand knowledge and
empirical experience as active inventors and innovators in a variety of
industrial and societal fields, both in Sweden and internationally.
The Council sees as its purpose
to contribute to developing Sweden as a nation of innovation, thereby
strengthening Sweden's competitiveness.
The Innovators Council
constitutes a source of knowledge, a consultative body and networking channel
for issues of importance for an efficient innovation policy.
In collaboration with industry,
labor organizations, public authorities and policy makers, the Council intends
to contribute to solutions for society's many challenges. Dialogue and
cooperation strengthens competitiveness, contributes to sustainable development,
provides foundation for new Swedish export opportunities and creates more jobs.
Innovators Council intends to -
as operative inventors and entrepreneurs - complement the Swedish Government's
expressed holistic perspective on the national innovation policy.
