Highlights 2016

  • Projects: IVA is currently running or has completed during the year several major policy-advice projects:

    Innovation within the Forestry Industry
    Good Cities of the Future
    Electricity Crossroads
    Resource-efficient Business Models
    Research Outlook and Attractiveness for Sustainable Growth

    IVA has also run projects aimed at attracting students to higher education in engineering and science (Technology Leap), and promoting entrepreneurship amongst the young (Prince Daniel’s Fellowship).

  • Seminars and outreach: More than 120 seminars and other outreach activities open to the public were organized. More than half of the seminars were hosted by the different divisions of the Academy or regional sections. The remainder were hosted by IVA projects or the IVA Business Executives Council.
  • International activities: IVA Fellows were represented at the CAETS and Euro-CASE Annual meetings. Several international delegations were received at the Academy, including a delegation led by the Prime Minister of Latvia in June, and a delegation led by the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic in November. IVA also made several delegation- and study-visits abroad, e.g. to Hong Kong, China, Finland, Germany, including a Royal Technology Mission with senior business leaders to Japan.
