SISP is running two projects on behalf of VINNOVA (the Sweden's Innovation Agency) and Tillväxtverket (Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth), respectively.

Innovation Excellence

Sweden's innovation agency VINNOVA supports a national pilot project to develop the Swedish science parks as regional nodes in the national innovation system. The project contributes to set a high professional standard of business processes in the Swedish science park environments.

Innovation Excellence is a strategic development project. It consists of sub-projects: identification and development of key value creation processes; and several local pilot projects to illustrate trends and good practice in the regionally-based business development.

Innovation Excellence is also expected to contribute to the innovation systems, in becoming even more accessible and value-creating in an international context and on a local, regional and national level. In addition, the project will provide a basis for a future national development programs for science parks.


Swedish Seed Funding

This is a national project to encourage the start-up and development of regional seed funds and business angel activity in Sweden. A significant number of SISP’s members are already having own funds linked to incubators, angel investor networks etc.

Seed funds involve local and regional venture capital and contributes to Sweden's business growth by investing equity capital and active ownership in the early stages of companies with high growth potential.
