One of the World’s Most Innovative Countries
Sweden has long been one of the world’s most innovative countries. New technology is increasingly drawn to Sweden because there exists a close collaboration between research institutes and the private and public sectors in the country: a synergy that continues to be a key factor helping to facilitate the foundation of global Swedish companies like Assa Abloy, AstraZeneca, Ericsson, Sandvik, SCA, Skanska and Volvo. Additionally, exporters enjoy excellent business opportunities in these same sectors.
Leader in Information & Communication Technologies Development
Sweden offers a dynamic business environment for developing information and communication technologies coupled with world leadership in converting technology into commercially viable products and applications. Sweden is now at the forefront of research into high-speed electronics and system design, and increasingly Swedish designed apps like Spotify and Skype are omnipresent. Decades of experience in telecom, wireless, electronics, computer game development and web design, have established Sweden as the go-to locale for ICT related R&D. Apple, ARM, Electronic Arts, Google, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Mediatek, Opera, Qualcomm, RIM, and many others have now arrived in Sweden to develop their technologies.
Dynamic & Progressive Business Environment
The reasons for Sweden’s current success as a destination for R&D and innovation include the country’s historic tradition of inventiveness, a continued commitment to gender equality, a highly educated populace, a strong belief in the individual akin to that found in the United States and the fact that the Nordic country ranks first in the EF EPI, the world’s English Proficiency Index. The Swedish flair for innovation and thirst for knowledge has now helped to make the country a world leader in IT and telecom. Kista Science City — Stockholm’s “Wireless Valley” — is the new home of over 700 high-tech companies.
