New Strategic Innovation Program!
The Swedish Energy Agency, Vinnova and Formas have decided to grant the application for setting up a Strategic Innovation Program for Smart Sustainable Cities with 40 MSEK/year the coming years.
The program is a continuation of the Strategic Innovation Agenda for Smart Sustainable Cities that was initiated by CESC and the KTH Energy platform in 2013. The agenda has been developed and expanded to now include some 50 partners under the leadership of Olga Kordas. See press release here (in Swedish).
- The program is a very welcome support to a research and innovation area that is crucial for future sustainability, says CESC-director Mattias Höjer.
