Sweden Innovation Days 2022 – The Conference

Date: January 17, 2022 - January 20, 2022
Location: Online

Join us at this four day digital conference to address the Sustainable Development Goals together.

Sweden Innovations Days are returning on January 17-20, 2022! This time as a free four day, global digital event, dedicated to fostering international collaboration to achieve the UN’s Global Goals.

While last year’s successful event focused on the role of Artificial Intelligence, this upcoming Sweden Innovation Days will explore how innovation can be used to improve environmental, economic and social sustainability in relation to the Global Goals.

The four day event will feature a packed program including world leading experts in green investment, mission orientated methods, the Global Goals, health and more! Together we will offer a platform for digital meetings including workshops, fireside chats, networking, knowledge sharing and matchmaking sessions as well as practical information about future network and funding opportunities.

Whether you are part of a startup, intermediary or corporate, working in the public sector, civil society, academia or a government agency, there is something at this event for everyone. We all need to be part of the innovation journey to create a more sustainable world.

Four days

Sweden Innovation Days aims to inspire action towards a more sustainable world as well as provide practical methods and success stories on how to achieve this. Each day will focus on a specific theme:

Day 1: Missions to achieve the Global Goals
Exploring both theoretical and practical ways to develop mission-oriented innovation at a global, regional and local level.

Day 2: Preventative health & wellbeing
Promoting preventative measures that help all people to stay physically and mentally healthy.

Day 3: Co-creation for innovation
Sharing tools to innovate in the broadest sense and create inclusive and democratic societies.

Day 4: Climate neutral cities
Building sustainable, just and carbon neutral cities with real action and greener investments.


Specialists in systeminnovation, strategic investment, innovation and design, digitalization and democracy. These world leading specialists will share their knowledge on the digital mainstage across all four days.
