About the blog

To strengthen our capacity for international collaborations, Sweden has placed Offices of Science and Innovation at the embassies in Beijing, Brasília, New Delhi, Seoul, Tokyo and Washington D.C. The overall goal of the offices is to strengthen Sweden’s global connections to strategic international innovation, science and higher education environments. The offices’ task is to act as brokers, strategic advisors and door-openers.

The priorities for the Offices of Science and Innovation follow the Swedish Government’s four Innovation Partnership Programmes – Digital transformation of industry, Skills supply and lifelong learning, Climate neutral industry and Health and life science. The offices priorities are also linked to 2030 Agenda and the UN global goals.

The Offices of Science and Innovation are financed and governed jointly by the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, the Ministry of Infrastructure, the Ministry of Education and Research and the Ministry of the Environment, in close collaboration with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
