IVA is turning 100 in 2019 and our anniversary celebration is focusing on the future. Our vision is for Sweden to strengthen its position as a leading knowledge nation with a competitive business sector as a foundation for our prosperity.
We are now working on securing funding for two long-term projects focusing on the future: “World-Class Knowledge and “Entrepreneurship for the Future”. To this end we have created an Anniversary Fund. In addition to asking for contributions from foundations, private individuals, companies and organisations, we are also inviting anyone who would like to support our work to donate.
World-Class Knowledgeis a theme with three main focus areas: strengthening Swedish education, positively impacting public attitudes towards knowledge, and an internship programme. Encouraging girls and women to study engineering and natural sciences is an area of particular focus.
Entrepreneurship for the Futureis intended to help foster a positive and attractive entrepreneurial culture, to help individuals develop in the art of entrepreneurship and to increase knowledge among policy-makers about the conditions necessary for entrepreneurship and intrepreneurship to flourish – all with the aim of ensuring that Sweden has a competitive climate for entrepreneurship.
Each theme will include scientific studies and analysis, as well as concrete activities.
