VINNOVA cooperates closely with a network of private and public players who will jointly develop, disseminate and apply the new knowledge. The most worthwhile synergies often arise from innovation systems of this type.

VINNOVA supports needs-driven research by basing its activities on the needs that exist among the different types of players in society. These may be regions, suppliers, emerging industrial clusters, and similar types of networks. One objective is encourage an increase mobility between sectors to make people more aware of the forces at work in the economy thus improving its capacity for innovation. We will also prioritise;
