4 The R&D funding will increase by 450 million € during the period – Increased appropriations for universities: 140 million – Increased appropriations for universities: 140 million € – Strategic research areas: 165 million – Strategic research areas: 165 million € – Research founding agencies: 60 million – Research infrastructure: 15 million – Industrial research institutes: 20 million – Innovation package: 15 million – Abolition of higher education VAT: 30 million – European Spallation Source (ESS): 15 million In addition, 270 million € will be invested in a research institute to serve the transport sector The new Research and Innovation bill

5 Excellent research is not enough for innovation! participation A good innovation policy is based on active participation from the entire innovation system

6 Source: Merit & EC (DG Enterprise) 2005 Several Nordic countries are leading innovators…

7 Innovation: See new possibilites and turn them into value propositions delivering customer values Input factors to innovation R&D Regulation Openess Trust Societal changes......Weather! Climate... Taxes Co-operation Value chains Organisation Structures Adminstrative protocolsLeadership And many many more! Innovation

8 Swedish Innovation System – general characteristics The economy strongly internationally linked The big international companies dominate the R&D-system Small sector of Research-institutes Universities dominate the public R&D- system and are charged with “a third task”, to cooperate with industry and society at large Creation of university spin-offs is active but other SMEs invest too little in R&D ………

17 Transport Systems Creating a sustainable and efficient transport system for economic growth and new markets Sustainable and efficient transport systems requires: Technological development Behavioral changes in travelling and planning of logistic patterns Sound politically induced policies and economic measures of control supporting safe and sustainable solutions. VINNOVA is active in supporting Swedish participation in the 7th Framework Program and ERANET Transport. Sweden has the third lowest logistic costs in the world. The challenges within the transport area are huge and new markets for sustainable transport solutions will evolve. transport policy. The Competence Centre CTS has contributed to position Sweden as an important actor within the area of transport policy.
