Today, Avalon Innovation became one of the parties to IoT Sverige, which finances innovative projects within IoT. Over the next two to three years, IoT Sverige will invest in Internet of Things for innovative social development. The focus is on IoT’s ability to help solve societal challenges in cooperation between municipalities, companies and researchers, thus strengthening the international competitiveness of companies. The projects funded under the program will be based on public organizations’ needs.
Vinnova stands for IoT Sweden’s funding, but the program’s direction is governed by the parties, which elects the board and sets the framework for the activities at the meeting. The parties are organizations with activities in Sweden, such as companies, authorities, universities, municipalities and county councils and industry organizations that have activities in the IoT area.
We are both proud and happy about the opportunity to participate in the important work of IoT Sverige and look forward to an exciting future.
