About the blog

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

The priorities of the Offices of Science and Innovation follow the Government’s five Innovation Partnership Programmes – Next Generation Travel and Transport, Smart Cities, Circular and Bio-based Economy, Life Science and Connected Industry and New Materials. 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.
