  • Open environments for industry innovation The Swedish ICT competence clusters are easily accessible for foreign companies. An openness to cross-company collaboration and numerous networking activities facilitate foreign company integration and promote innovation excellence. Sweden hosts several internationally competitive ICT competence clusters. Major centers include Mobile Valley, Telematics Valley, TelecomCity, Linköping/Norrköping, InternetBay and Öresund IT. Proximity to renowned universities and research centers and critical mass in terms of number and size of companies are some of their common denominators. The networks of interconnected companies, specialized suppliers, academic institutions, industrial research institutes, science parks and technology incubators make the clusters uniquely positioned to foster innovation. Cluster development and improvement is a priority for the Swedish government and local bodies. One example is the establishment of a new state-financed entity to support and promote Sweden’s innovation system. Creation of mobile applications and services is a common feature of all clusters. There are established test beds for the development and early commercialization of new technology, products, applications and services. Swedish and international companies work side by side to advance know-how and business offerings. Key features – Swedish ICT clusters: Several internationally competitive ICT clusters: Mobile Valley, Telematics Valley, TelecomCity, Linköping/Norrköping, InternetBay and Öresund IT Significant presence of international companies in most clusters Swedish government active in cluster development Focus on mobility: usage, applications and converging technologies Clusters are geographically centered groups of related firms and industries operating in an environment characterized by a high degree of specialization, intense competition, and a critical mass of highly educated employees.
