Innovative Sweden

January 23 – February 10, 2012
MaRS Discovery District

Sweden and Canada have much in common—both countries have relatively small populations, advanced economies and an expanding relationship in technology innovation. Throughout its three-week run, this event will highlight groundbreaking products from promising Swedish startups in the fields of IT and Communications, Clean Technology, Gaming and Life Science, including:

  • Robots for elderly care service
  • Computers controlled by eye movement
  • Adhesive strips that loosen when you shine light on them

The event also features an extensive program of seminars, discussion panels, keynotes and business exchanges—the ideal forum for entrepreneurs, business advisors, students, researchers and innovation experts to connect, learn and share knowledge.


Innovative Sweden at MaRS is supported by ABB, AstraZeneca, Ericsson and Getinge, in co-operation with MaRS and the Embassy of Sweden.
