Services and ICT is one of VINNOVA's strategic areas. The area deals with meeting the changes and opportunities in society resulting from the new information technology.
Europe has over 250 million daily Internet users and almost everybody has a mobile phone. Reliance on information and communications technology has been accentuated by its enabling role in practically all sectors. Information technology has fundamentally changed the way we do business, develop products and services, run companies and act as consumers.
Despite the obvious positive impacts of information technology, we are facing major challenges. Personal integrity, security, accessibility and reliability are becoming increasingly important as information technology permeates yet deeper into industry and society.
In partnership with relevant actors, VINNOVA has identified three key areas of major potential: Integration and Monitoring, Information Management and Services and Business Opportunities. VINNOVA has several programmes targeting these areas.
