India Sweden Innovation Day
With the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution & Globalization 4.0, we stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, consume and relate to one another. The unprecedented pace of technological change means that our systems of health, transportation, safety, communication, production, distribution, and energy – just to name a few – will be completely transformed.
Managing that change can create new business opportunities between India and Sweden. A synergy between these two nations on Government, Industrial, Academic, Cities and Start-Up fronts will lead to a new flavour of innovation and entrepreneurship to build domestic competitiveness. With advances in robotics and artificial intelligence in the context of aging societies like Sweden and growing societies like India, we will have to move from a narrative of production and consumption toward one of sharing, caring creating a more inclusive equitable approach.
Can India and Sweden work even closer together to solve some of the greater issues affecting all humanity. How can the Start-Up Revolution in India and Sweden contribute here? How will the Sweden India partnership using resilient and sustainable Technology, Energy and Innovation based solutions contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Change Goals?
On the 9th of September as part of Stockholm Tech Week, we will have a focus on the creative force of Industrial/ Government change-makers, start-ups and solutionaries. Two delegations will come from India: Confederation of Indian Industry Tech Delegation and Start Up Tech Delegation with Invest Stockholm/ Sweden India Business Council. The finalists of the Smart City Innovation Hackathon held on 4th and 5th of September shall also present their final pitch (Interested to be part of the Hackathon? hackathon URL).
