Strategic innovation programmes (SIP)
Strategic innovation partnership programmes bring together leading actors from academia, private and public sectors to strengthen competitiveness and contribute to sustainable development in prioritised areas.
Strong KTH participation
The Swedish Government launched the Strategic Innovation partnership programmes to help meet a range of societal challenges Sweden faces. The programmes involve new ways of travelling, residing, doing business, living, communicating, and using and preserving the world’s resources and ecosystems. The funding is distributed via the Swedish Innovation Agency, the Swedish Energy Agency and the Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development. KTH participates in several programmes.
- Infrasweden 2030, initiated in 2015 that is focused on solutions for resource-efficient and sustainable transportation infrastructure.
