Today we had our kick-off lunch for our extensive Vinnova application Open Innovation for Industry that was granted before the holidays and now nine innovation projects are starting up in open testbed Urban ICT Arena. These projects are part of our aim to develop high-level best practices that facilitate innovation collaboration between large and small companies.
The startups and SMEs participating in this are Agama Technologies AB, Bumbee Labs AB, CargoBeacon AB, InnovationSpark Stockholm AB, Procera Networks AB, Sarvai AB and SurfCleaner AB. They got the chance to meet and greet, present their project and end the day with a wonderful libanese meze.
The long-term goal of the main project Open Innovation for Industry is to increase innovation collaboration between large and small companies, paving the way for Swedish industry to be in the digital forefront and to create new jobs in growing companies. And with the help of TEYI Services AB in collaboration with Ivar Jacobson International AB, strive to shape high-level best practices to support innovation collaboration between large and small companies.
