Save the date: R2B Summit 2023

This year’s R2B Summit is a full-day event taking place at 7A Posthuset in Stockholm on 4 October 2023. The R2B Summit is a unique meeting place with opportunities for researchers and the business community to find each other and exchange experiences and perspectives, with a view to creating innovations and business opportunities together. The programme is aimed at those who hold a leading position or are responsible for innovation, research and development at a company or an organisation. And at researchers on IVA’s 100 List 2023.

Participation provides an insight into up to 79 current research projects from Swedish higher education institutions in the categories: Business Models, Circular Economy, Deep Tech, Green and Blue Industries, Infrastructure, Society and Welfare, and Smart Industry – all with huge potential to create value, for example through industrial commercialisation, business and method development or societal impact.

The overarching theme for the research projects on IVA’s 100 List 2023 is ‘Technology in the service of humanity’. All the participating projects are represented by researchers who are looking to make contact with businesses and social actors for collaboration on the continued development, application and utilisation of their research.

The R2B Summit is organised by IVA’s Research2Business initiative to enhance and increase collaboration between university researchers and businesses for everyone’s mutual benefit. The idea is that more successful collaborations on research results that lead to innovations, or other commercial developments, will strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness and contribute to positive social development. 

IVA’s 100 List

IVA’s annual 100 List pulls together a wide range of research projects from Swedish higher education institutions on topical themes – all with the potential to create value, through commercialisation, business and method development or societal impact. 

By building bridges between the research and business communities, we offer greater opportunities for potentially world-changing research to realise its commercial and social value.
