The SSF – Vinnova third joint conference on Software for Competitiveness: Big Data and Other Frontiers

A digitalization wave is spreading through the world. Access to very big data samples, and automatic services to extract human-relevant knowledge from the data flow will change our industry and society. ICT is the core technology behind this revolution. SSF and Vinnova work to support Sweden’s academy and industry to be competitive in ICT research and development.

SSF funds academic research in support of Swedish competitiveness with an emphasis on framework programmes like the 100 million SEK Information-Intensive Systems, and the 200 million SEK Big Data and Computational Science, both presented at this conference. These are complemented by various grants to primarily young individual researchers.

Vinnova supports Sweden’s digitalization through several initiatives. International ICT R&D cooperation is supported by approx. 150 MSEK/year through various programs: EU ECSEL JU, EUREKA ICT clusters, Eurostars and bilateral activities. Vinnova also acts for Sweden in steering and support of the EU LEIT-ICT program (approx. 250 MSEK/year from EU to Sweden). Most of these programs and some key projects are presented at this conference.
